- Now back in the UK after a Berlin sojourn, Irish dance-music-writer-turned-producer adds Culprit to an already impressive CV which has seen Cadenza, Get Physical and Cocoon make use of his ample musical talents. The emotional tech house of "Endless Feeling" has a doleful analogue bassline snaking through it, a hint of a Kerri Chandler cowbell and swathes of rich pads pummelling you like a Thai massage. It's complex, insofar as there are lots of ideas running through it, but not in an overly fussy way. It's so textured you can reach out and touch it.
In contrast, "Tell Me What You Need" inhabits darker, 3 AM places; Herlihy serves up the warmth of a distorted Rhodes piano to counterbalance paranoid bass growls and minimalist brush strokes. Just to show off, "The Sequence" goes somewhere totally different to its siblings. In this case that's some future disco house Valhalla, where angelic hosts proclaim above twinkling G-funk stylings and heavily-reverbed bass wobbles.
