What can I say? Lawrence releases a tune—my ears perk up. That’s just the way it is, and, at least for the foreseeable future, the way it’s gonna be. The Smallville head just makes some of the most sophisticated house music anywhere, and within a couple bars can bring you into his world of rainy days, faded photographs, and icy-but-soulful headphone jams. Love.

Chock-full of all the house goodness I’ve expected since the debut Pets release, Friends Will Carry You Home Too Part 2 is another comp you could put a whole set together with (albeit a short one). With dreamy, low-slung grooves like Kamp’s “Azure,” to big, boomin’ bangers like Billy Disney’s “Rum Punch,” this 12-tracker is just what the doctor ordered if you’re in the mood to let the label do the digging for you. And let’s be honest—who’s always got hours to spare shopping for tracks?

Detboi’s “Darkside” was amazing, so as soon as this came in I was all over it. The new track, “Focus,” is just as amazing but the package doesn’t stop there. There’s 14 lovely bass-filled treats on his latest full-length, Sliding Floors. Highly recommended!
