NuNorthern Soul may be Ibiza-based, but the label's connections with Nottingham run deep. Over the years, Phil Cooper's imprint has offered up countless releases and remixes from some of the East Midlands' city's most Balearic-minded residents, including Crazy P's Jim Baron, Is It Balearic? chiefs Coyote and, most recently, Constellations Workshop associates Brown Fang.You can also add to that list Torn Sail, a collaboration between Brown Fang members Jon Thompson and Henry Scott, and another Notts-based NuNorthern Soul contributor, Huw Costin. The trio's mesmerizing 'Disconnected' recently featured on the label's deluxe 10th anniversary vinyl box set and now they return with a single credited to both Brown Fang and Torn Sail - the first such occurrence of that happening.Those who heard Brown Fang's brilliant mini-album, Sherwood Pines, will immediately feel at home. Both 'Exit' and 'Endless', the two tracks showcased on this fine single release, feature the same gorgeous, slowly shifting fusion of sun-kissed electric guitar textures, ambient atmospherics and immersive, sunset-friendly sound design.First up is 'Exit', an undulating, slow burning delight where rising and falling electronic melodies and yearning, gently jazzy electric guitar motifs rise above a sparse, shuffling, subtly Latin-tinged drum machine rhythm and warming bass. Endearing, enveloping and endlessly attractive, the track seemingly blossoms in slow motion throughout it's' three-and-a-half-minute duration, with additional musical elements presenting themselves as it progresses. Even by the trio's high standards, it's a magical composition.On 'Endless', the long-time collaborators explore their love of mind-soothing ambient soundscapes. Doffing a cap to the 1970s new age ambience of Steve Hillage - whose distinctively languid, stretched out, effects-laden electric guitar solos were undoubtedly an inspiration -Thompson, Scott and Costin deliver a becalmed and brilliant dream-scape full of hazy aural textures, drifting chords and gentle, eyes-closed vocalizations. It feels like a loved-up, smile-inducing evocation of the most visually stunning dawn you've ever ushered in after a night dancing under the stars.
