Reliably informed

ROUNDHØUSE, AKA Ian Thompson, releases the title track Circles from his upcoming album, Halcyon.

A nostalgic take on 90’s electronic house music, Circles refreshes the classic hypnotic club beat, allowing strangely electrifying ear candy to bubble up alongside the occasional hit from retro keys.

The track manages to paint a picture of the 90’s club scene while staying equally calm and peaceful. An understated, clever piece of work where rising sounds used early on reminiscent of a crowd chanting are mirrored by a real crowd towards the end of the track.

Created in his woodland recording studio set in the Scottish Borders, the Scottish producer hints at a world before Insta moments; a throwback to a time now seemingly lost. The beat changes and the club moves on.
