With material from Hyetal, Bashmore, Headhunter, Joker and more in their discography, Soul Motive have established a reputation for seeking out the various strands of music blossoming both close by their Bristol HQ and far (Cosmin TRG has also featured on the label) Arriving at their eleventh release Soul Motive further indulge the sounds of local talent Coleco, a producer who contributed to one of the label's early, split releases and is now granted the full grip of a twelve inch. Lead track "Hypnagogia" takes it's cue from the loose percussive style of Shackleton, gradually weaving in a thumping half step groove and intoxicating layers of Eastern strings - accomplished stuff! On the flip Victoria Klewin adds her floating, slightly saturated vocal tones to the galloping mysticism of "Find Me."
