Review

London-based Arttu Snellman has been creating refined electronic dub productions since 2002, with a string of 12″s on Sub Static, Süd Electronic and Rrygular, and a full-length for Jay Haze’s Future Dub imprint. While that album explored meditative and ambient moods, Lump’s new EP for Contexterrior was crafted with the club in mind. Mr. Snellman claims to produce music only when he’s in a good mood, and you can certainly hear a sense of optimism behind “Confusion” as anti-diva Lerato’s filtered vocals swirl around the beat’s turbulent bounce. Equally upbeat, but more playful and experimental, is the flip-side “Music Lover ” . Myriad micro-elements flutter throughout, weaving in and out of your consciousness, bound together by the constant syncopated bassline.

Tsugi Mag (France): “Dans une veine deep house épurée se rapprochant de ce qu’on peut entendre chez Innervisions, un titre léger et cotonneux, joliment produit, qui déroule tranquillement. Suit une plage plus aride, “Music Lover”, plus proche des productions minimales et bouncy d’un Jay Haze.”
