We've not been short on material from lion of Lyon Ethyene of late. Impressively Essence of Adolescence is the Moonrise Hill Material cofounder's fifth solo EP in the past 18 months. As usual the fivetrack set is packed with dusty jazzflecked samples sumptuously soulful musicality and the kind of slinky sunkissed grooves that seem to shimmy from the speakers in a haze of highgrade smoke. Along the way he fuses deep house with starry jazzfunk ("Time Flies Baby") sultry modern soul (impeccable vocalladen loop jam "Cherish The Day") and stringdrenched Philadelphia disco (bouncy shuffler "A Common Soul"). Typically he's also included a bonus instrumental hiphop workout ("EFuel Ov'me").
