The first time I heard an artist namedrop Adesse Versions he talked about him like Adesse was already a star. And from those first white label “versions,” he became one of the most enduring fixtures in the edit scene and there’s not a damn thing he touches that I don’t immediately chuck in the shopping cart or the bit bucket. “Fade Out” is a hunk of low-key genius: smooth and silky, rolling through the rink in a blur of glistening percussion and soul with strings. Delusions of Grandeur picked it up for Pulp Fusion, a new EP that came out in late January but was already being blasted out by everyone able to lay their hands on a promo. The title track has a gnarly bite to it and a rise that would give mom and dad in their Northern Soul members’ clubs a heart attack.
