Richard Seeley – Lure

Share

I don’t know much of Richard Seeley’s output, but from what I have heard, his is a production arsenal that’s littered with talent, such is the result of his output thus far on his deservedly fast-rising Glue imprint. Sure, Seeley might be the sole protagonist at the label, but to give him his dues, it’s a cloak he wears with some distinction, as track-after-track thus far have showcased a producer of considerable merits.

His latest dish of wonky, inspired, house-inclined trappings is served up courtesy of Lure. A proverbial tale of two halves, it sees Seeley delve head first into two very different worlds, simultaneously highlighting his understanding of the production process. Title track ”Lure” is fixated on a heady, amiable, almost carefree tip, with its ubiquitous chimes and clashing bells ensuring it stands out from the pack.

On the B-side, the producer at hand opts for arguably more self-indulgent trappings, as Seeley unleashes ”Amour”, a track with a distinctly different modus operandi. More spooky than its brother – but ultimately, not quite as beguiling – it still proves the ying to ”Lure”’s yang. If it’s carefully woven tech/house of a most considered edge you’re after, Seeley’s latest is sure to tick multiple boxes.
