A Good Place 03:47


Finn returns to Local Action with his first EP since the Sometimes The Going… / Dance Music Has Betrayed Us All / Do What You Want Forever trilogy.

Since Finn brought his last EP trilogy to a close in 2019 with Do What You Want Forever, he’s stayed busy — releasing collaborative singles with Equiknoxx’s Shanique Marie and long-time sparring partner India Jordan, a 12” for Ruf Dug’s Ruf Kutz label and a glowing organ house remix for For Those I Love, plus hosting his much-loved monthly NTS Radio show (while occasionally covering Charlie Bones’ Do!!You!!! breakfast show) and launching Mixtape Club, a celebrated not-for-profit dance music mix series, during the UK lockdown.

He’s also taken 2 B REAL — the record label that he runs under Local Action — from strength to strength, releasing acclaimed records by Martyn Bootyspoon, Anz, Clemency, LOFT, Gage and Michael J. Blood before winning Breakthrough Label of 2020 at the DJ Mag Best of British awards.

We’ve often joked that Finn makes music for trying times. His records have traditionally toed a careful line between melancholy and euphoria; deep angst balanced against an immovable optimism. But A Good Place came together during especially trying times — when hope was difficult to find and the promise of brighter days became more and more of an abstract concept. This is a record conceived and released against a heavy backdrop of palpable tiredness and malaise, its title track borrowing a phrase from New Jersey’s Backroom Productions: “just can’t rest / when there’s trouble.”

The artwork for A Good Place is a beautiful woodblock cut by Al Wootton — sunshine and clouds peeking through a bedroom window. A deep melancholy is still present, but Finn’s trademark positivity is less sharp than before: the joy is dreamier, foggier and out of focus.
