With a sound that would fit right in among the greats on PLM, Soul Controller
, a.k.a. Boston's Jonathan Gogel, recently turned out a tight, 5-track EP. Subtle Soul
is an evocative mix of his signature chopped lickss with a slight, modern twist. Standout track "In My Eyes" takes those glitchy, gut-wrenching grooves and adds a dash of wobble for bass enthusiasts. This is by no means banger fare--far from it. This "subtle" collection is more at home in a late-night, swanky Thai fusion tapas bar in Soho at 4:30 in the morning, rather than a boozy, sweaty club in Jersey. This is thinking-man's music. Tracks for your feet and head, alike.
