Sheffield's premiere warehouse agitator Lo Shea returns with the A Se EP, the sixth of ten mooted 12" releases on his Seaghdha imprint. Established almost a year ago, Seaghdha has fully lived up to it's Gaelic meaning, acting as a creative outlet for Lo Shea to demonstrate his production prowess across various tints of the house and techno spectrum. Lead track "Remember Them Times" takes a similar approach to "DTB" from the last Seaghdha 12", ripping into a heavily percussive groove that's inspired by late 90s UK garage's rowdiness but made memorable by the swooping strings. Alongside it "Dr Diamond" sees tough drums paired with a wonderfully filtered lead that lock in your attention until a swooping crescendo of chords rises from the ether. Face down and "Alice" sees O'Shea channelling Black Jazz Consortium vibes on an extended ode to the Coltrane clan. Proper UK house!
