The second release to hit Soul Quest Records is a decadently smooth two-track bomb fit for listeners seeking rays of sonic sunshine.

East Londoner Max Sinàl, for the first time under this alias, teams up with emerging vocal talent and pianist Hutch The Great, jazz trumpeter Mark Crown, and London-based poet, Melodi Marsh. Together they deliver lustrous jazz-flecked deep house music.

The a-side, Let Your Hair Down with Hutch, invites you to, well, let your hair down. Seriously silky, fragile and heartfelt vocals, a combination of luscious keyboard and piano, and an irresistible bassline. There’s not much more to ask for when it comes to sun-drenched, laid-back house music.

The b-side, Let You In, is another steady house jam that features the magical noodling of Hutch’s keys and his smattering of lazy vocals. Being brought into the fold here is the spoken word poetry of Melodi Marsh. She effortlessly fits into the groove a deep story about a significant other hiding away – “I wish you’d let me in instead of drowning your sorrows” – before the track ascends into a dazzling explosion of keys from Hutch.

If you’re looking for the perfect soundtrack to endless sunsets this summer, you’ve just found it.

The EP, SQR002, will be released on 7th July 2023 and will be available in both physical and digital formats, including 100 hand-stamped 12” copies.
