Donnacha Costello - Before We Say Goodbye E.P. [Poker Flat Recordings Promo]

It's only a few days since Donnacha Costello's forthcoming album "Before We Say Goodbye", scheduled via Poker Flat Recordings, has been reviewed on these pages and it's only now to be announced that there'll be a 12" vinyl featuring four of nine album tracks for DJ-use. A1 is the ultimate beauty of "Leaving Berlin" which can be filed as
this years Armchair Techno anthem so far, A2 track "No-one Is Watching" is on a laid back (Neo)Detroit-influenced tip, opening spaces for classy chords and melody work, "Roll It Out" is to be found on B1, a slowed-down but heavily pumping tune showing a nice contrast between its more abstract, uplifting melody and dark'ish percussion work whilst the final B2 piece "Stretching Time" is the perfect closing tune after a long night out: calm, warm, featuring deep strings and some friendly bleeping sounds waving goodbye to exhausted clubbers. Excellent choice and defo a must have.
