Andrew Red Hand finally joins the Lobster main family. He takes you deep into the night with haunting synth lines, deep chicago grooves and proper drum machine battery on his latest effort for the LT UNDR sublabel.
Supreems returns to Lobster Theremin with a hazy, dream-state inducing EP so do as the title says – close your eyes and feel the soaring pads, scattered breakbeats and percussive synths pulse right through you.
Core family member and Crisis founder Imre Kiss returns to the Lobster fray with a deep, riveting and emotive EP for sub-label Mörk. Infused with the emotional energy of his previous outings whilst plunging into a wormhole of London-centric sonic references, Strangers is Imre at his most potent and signals a striking return for the Budapest producer.
Lobster Theremin dig back down unda’ to bring another fresh salty Aussie experience to the table with well seasoned young talent Shedbug aka Geordie Elliot-Kerr at the helm for this one. As Shedbug he makes entrancing house, acid-tinted techno, cosmic electro and heavily stepped UK-influenced jams. On Destination Love, Shedbug harnesses the emotive, pad-heavy sound showcased on previous outings whilst mixing in blend of interstellar synths, jagged breaks and crusted-yet-cutting drum work – all mixed down with some serious studio finishing.
One of Chicago’s finest production and DJ talents, and a close Stateside Lobster family member – Garrett David – returns for a studio-focused foray into Chicago’s sonic house music history.
A soothing summer airstream coasting off of the Adriatic, Lock Eyes turns in four kaleidoscopic house & techno jams for the Lobster main label, keeping the summer sun rolling on through.
Richard Vergez launched the Night Foundation project with little fanfare in 2016, with several tracks and a new artist page appearing inconspicuously late at night in the UK time zone. With him already being a part of the Lobster network – producing the iconic collages that burnished the stellar Raw MT ‘Richard’s Revenge’ and Hedge Maze ‘Kerb Hits’ releases – it wasn’t long before Lobster Theremin’s Jimmy Asquith became literally the 12th play of these new tracks via the usual social media algorithmic attraction. Soaring solo synth expeditions came floating from the tinny 3am laptop. With headphones and a better system; a full sonic explosion of raw hardware warmth, twinkling icicles and soft landing pads. Nostalgic, interlocking melodies and slow drawn-out synth lines that nod back to the psych rock workouts of Steve Hillage and even elements of Pink Floyd. A steady and studied extended improv evoking patience, peace and interstellar harmony. Formed of three completely individual yet inseparable parts, Memory Bells is a touching and truly special body of work. Evocative, immersive and another Lobster Sleep Sequence catalogue entry for quieter times.
