Thomas Xu: Different Wisdoms 12″ EP

Previously appearing on Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature label, both as a producer and a visual artist, Michigan’s Thomas Xu launches his own Steady Flight Circle with this EP. These 3 tracks are related to house but far more delicate, with very carefully chosen patterns of drums, keys, and plucked strings. He goes for intimacy and personal expression rather than obvious club heat, and the result is a remarkably accomplished, original, and heartfelt EP. The B-side (“Create Hope”) is perhaps the most mixable track here, but even it sounds far more fragile and homemade than you typically expect of house music. Outstanding.
