SoFar is the second EP by Glasgow’s Soosh. Here he expands his wonderful style of soulful, warm melodies and drops of clapping-sounds, soft percussion and vocal shreds. Soosh is in good company on SoFar: London‘s Greenwood Sharps and Dutch youngster Jameszoo both remix ‘Us’ in their own highly infectious manner. Beat-miner Kelpe re-arranges and delightfully smoothes out ‘Speechless‘. Sekuoia adds strong flavor to the digital release with his bonusremix of ‘Everything You Say’.
Soosh aka Soroosh Khavari was born in Iran, escaping to Scotland fleeing persecution when a year old with his family. Taking a year out from his job in 2010, Soosh went traveling and found his niche in British Columbia, Canada. Armed with a tape recorder, sampler, couple of synthesizers and an overflowing heart, there he finally managed to finish his first works. In 2011 he released his self-titled debut EP on Fuselab/Alpha Pup Records and also made ‘sophisticated’ noise with remixes on Error Broadcast and Project Mooncircle. Early 2012 the track ‘Changing Spheres’ appeared on the SEE-A-SOUND LP which was inspired by graphic designer Michiel Schuurman.
