Melbournian multi-hyphenate LUKE BROWN has his hands in a lot of pots, having dug deep in his DJ duo with Ricardo Ramos, LESLIE SALVADOR, as well as his ongoing death-disco / dark-synth revisionist twosome, NEGATIV MAGICK. But the past few years have found him exploring more classic, scruffed-up analog house terrain via his latest alias LES LEVEL, and his six-track debut is purist uncut club gold. Bookended by a pair of mixes of the stellar neo-Chicago anthem "House of Need," the rest of the tracks prowl through a host of suave, shuffling, Strictly Rhythmic variations, from the 3 AM skyline seducer "Smooth Sailing" to the pumping, jazzy jack-groove "Working Nights." An expert assemblage by a nuanced craftsman with style to burn. Limited edition of 450 copies.
