"Learning his trade at the Planet Funk studios in the late '90s, Abyss' Passion EP displays all the hallmarks of a master craftsman already glimpsed on Abyss' 'Mind Games' track for Buzzin' Fly and last year's Skim/Shaker/Dirty Colours EP with Lilith label head Remo on Forensic Records, both of which caught the ear of Jerome Sydenham, who recently signed him to Ibadan Recordings. 'Passion' is a very personal statement from Guiseppe, who suffered from a temporary disease which required him to spend a prolonged time in the hospital. Creating music is his way of maintaining a normal life in between his spells of treatment, something he hopes will both inspire others and gives the carefully-orchestrated and ever-shifting moods of the title track a profound emotional quality.'Memories' meanwhile is house music at its most tense and hypnotic, with Guiseppe's exquisite sense of detail apparent in the build from the stark opening to the dramatic string-laden crescendo. Lilith's spirit of international co-operation has seen them seek out Swedish producer Linus Eklow aka Style Of Eye, the man behind recent releases on Dirtybird and Pickadoll, to remix 'Passion.' Taking Abyss' original to an altogether wilder place, with an expansive breakdown and eerie echoes from the darker fringes of the dancefloor, Style Of Eye proves why he is regarded as one of the most innovative producers today and thus a kindred spirit to both Lilith and Abyss."
