B1. We Can Find Love
B2. Firmly Rooted (original)

Press Release :
"Firmly Rooted" initially appeared on the first ever Cookshop release, the "Taster 1 EP", to great acclaim so we felt it only right to re-issue a newly tweaked and remastered version along with remixes from the mighty Hint of Ninja Tune/Tru Thoughts renounce and Norway’s fast rising beats embassador Implosion Quintet.

For those unfamiliar, "Firmly Rooted" is an epic slice of pure late night cinematic beauty laden with live double bass, haunting horns and some stunning trumpet work care of Quentin Collins (Basement Jaxx/Omar). A truly melancholy piece of modern psychedelic jazz. Also featured on the B side is a brand new Lost Idol cut entitled "We Can Find Love", giving a brief glimpse of things to come on his debut album "Utters From A Cluttered Mind". Hip hop beats, eerie rhodes and achingly beautiful piano loops are the order of the day on this one.

Taking things in the dancefloor’s direction our remixer Hint lays down a super laidback groove with funked up bass and guitar taking his now trademark futureboogie sound one step further, whilst Implosion Quintet boggles belief with a bastard samba shuffle-style remix that just grows and grows, watch the bass on this one!
