’The Paradox of Principles’ is Scott’s third outing on the label and continues to impressively lay the foundations for the Grand Plans sound. Deeply introspective and well-crafted, there’s a palpable sense of conscience and contemplation behind every track title and every moment that spans this release.

The EP springs to life with the lead track ‘Mistreated’ - a yearning, gospel influenced number that also features a remix from Manchester duo Studioheist, who enjoyed a stellar 2016 via their notable works on Large Music. Continuing the thoughtful and reflective theme, Scott enlists Chicago’s KE to provide spoken vocals on ‘Take It Back’, a throwback jam with solid drums and jazz chords that pays homage to house music’s golden age. The final track, ‘I Sold My Soul’ - with it’s monologue about integrity - is a warning about the pitfalls and mistakes of playing to popularity and is a statement of self-criticism and contrition from an artist who’s not afraid to wear his musical heart on his sleeve.
