Cromby is an exciting addition to the London House music scene: Originally hailing from Belfast he has made camp in the British capital and brought his MPC 2000 XL with him. The young man who has grown up listening to Chez Damier and Moodymann makes use of the Japanese sampler from Akai in a highly fresh and creative way combining raw drums with sweet and melancholic pads and chords. On his ‘Planets And Parks EP’ Cromby displays a very nice balance between a traditional Deep House understanding and a forward thinking attitude and is thus just perfect for Tenderparks’s idea of musicality. As far as the artwork of the record is concerned the beautiful black and white image is the last part of Tenderpark’s current series concieved by art director Till Sperrle and photographer Magdalena Bichler. And as you’ve come to expect from Tenderpark all tracks have been mastered and cut by Helmut Erler at Dubplates & Mastering once more.
