First emerging on his own Little Strong label back in 2011, the producer known only as Lord Of The Isles has proved pleasantly hard to pin down on his output thus far. His releases for the likes of Cocktail D'Amour, Ene, Shevchenko, and Firecracker have often broached many different styles within the space of a twelve inch but have been bound by a sumptuous production finish, a luxuriant sheen that ensures you recognise the material as the work of Lord Of The Isles. This five track 301C Symphony EP for Munich's Permanent Vacation is undoubtedly the Scottish producer's most high profile release to date and sees no concession in style or approach. The final final beatless, string heavy "Western Electric" is a wonderful finale to perhaps his best work yet!
