"Over the past decade Soul Intent has had releases on some of the most esteemed labels in underground music, including Commercial Suicide, Samurai Music & 31 Records. His own imprint Lossless Music will play host to his debut LP ‘Delusions of Grandeur’ forthcoming the end of May. The LP is testament not only to the diversity of Soul Intent’s musical palette, but his vast production knowledge. Including collaborations with long time affiliate Chris Gittins, Chromatic and jazz vocalist Sue Mae, the long awaited solo release explores all sides of the drum and bass spectrum.

From the techy, sinister undertones of ‘The Future’ and ‘Test Fire’; where waves of pulsing synths are met with militant, steppy drums and menacing undertones, to the beautiful vocal arrangements and piano melodies of ‘Nearly There’ and ‘Almost’, showcasing the softer, more delicate side to the album. ‘Too Funky’ and ‘Thou Shall Not Die’ provide the perfect blend of attack with their crushing sub bass, breaks and pulsing leads, while ‘Heart Chord’ and ‘Into the Unknown’ float between dulcet vocals rolling bass and melancholy licks. ‘Cry For You’ particularly caught my attention; a gritty, unforgiving rhythm wrapped around soulful, sparse vocals that loop around crunchy, synths, breaks and thundering bass. ‘Delusions of Grandeur’ reflects Soul Intent’s expert use of sound design within his production; his attention to detail is second to none, and when listening to this LP start to finish you become encased in a musical journey spanning ten years.

We had the pleasure of having a few words with the man himself, on the album and the journey behind it, the label and what’s next...."
