London producer Greg Scrase (who releases tracks simply under his surname, Scrase) will issue his Heart EP next month via the growing Love Love label. Said to be inspired by '90s ambient house, the record's title track layers heavenly textures and light melodies atop a straightforward four-on-the-floor beat. As the tune pushes forward, its sonic depth expands—robotic melodies and delicate arpeggios trickle in from the background, as long-winded vocals are repitched with the softest touch. Scrase's "Heart" will be joined by two other similarly expansive ventures into ambient house, as well as a remix from fellow Londoner Dave Monolith (under his MNLTH alias), when the Heart EP lands on August 11.
