Since launching his Roar Groove label a couple of years back, Graeme Clark has become increasingly prolific. Almost a year to the day from the release of his first album of original productions, Love That Will Not Die, the Glaswegian presents the follow-up, Intimate Connection.
Throughout, there’s an emphasis on Balearic-minded deep house, with picturesque synth lines and toasty chords stretching out over rich and groovy deep house rhythms. Of course, there are darker turns along the way – see the Red Zone influenced bump of “Answerman”, and the warehouse friendly “Noturningback” – but these still bristle with tactile, loved-up intent.
A trio of previously unheard “live dubs” of cuts from Love That Will Not Die completes an excellent package.
