Conceived in a cosntant state of limbo, the Compton White EP tells the story of a childhood lived between many homes.

It's creator, UK based producer and multi instrumentalist Lloyd Whittle, is part of a generation of Romany Showmen - 'Land Scratchers' - who have settled on the coasts of Great Britain 100 years or so ago.

The seasonal nature of his family's business put him in a state of constant migration between the 'island' (Isle of Wight) and the 'mainland' (England).

The EP was written in an attempt to capture this duality. It therefore makes sense that the EP traverses a number of styles and genres; boom bap beats dripping in nostalgia, and warm ambiance and distinctly British, pastoral, almost prog like elements, with the occasional pirate radio static cutting through proceedings.

The confidence with which Compton throws everything together actually holds these disparate elements together.

All the more impressive keeping in mind this is his debut release.
