Jazzsticks and Blendits affiliate/Konfront Audio member Simstah makes his debut on a label from his own hometown Bern with "A Lost Path". One of his most comprehensive solo EPs, it showcases his deepest, most contemplative tendencies as we're soothed by stripped back arrangement and organic textures that get deeper the further we explore the path. "Oblivious" opens with some deep jungle science and heavy atmospheres before "2020" takes us on a dark, tribal halftime roll. Meanwhile on the B, "A Lost Path" is a mournful reflective piece that nods at the work of Asa, Sorrow or Phaeleh before "The Untold Story" closes the show with piano-tickling ambience. Time to get lost.
