...this release marks the long-awaited, official return of Sunkissed - after 19 years... has it really been that long? Sunkissed was Woodwork's inaugural artist and main project of producer Pete Grove throughout the 1990s... for nearly a decade, Sunkissed was known in Canada's underground electronic scene as a dedicated and adventurous live PA with a very compact and open ended improvisational style, well-suited to the genre-bending deep dub tech house that he became known for... these tracks are an enthusiastic return to those performance techniques and to that sound...

Essence Defined reaches deep through sweet emotional nuances with a combination of dusty stabs and bouncy acid disco bass line... it's house, make no mistake - built from fragments of dub techno

Distant Past, a straight-up techno counterpart, is a nod to some early German, UK and Detroit influences and to the distinct sound of Sunkissed in the late 90s... a new perspective on distant memories...
