The EP is a stripped back and vivid suite, using unusual spaces and loose arrangements to emphasise sharp rhythmical angles. This is no more clear than on lead track 'Allyallrecords', a collaboration with Addison Groove, where the music plays hide and seek, deep but energetic in its ability to play with anticipation.
'Pink22', with up-and-coming singer Clara La San, is an unfurling letter to an unwanted lover, the production gracefully accompanying the vocal with layers of sand-like noise, hiss, and crackly bass and bleeps on a bed of blue notes.
'Spoonbender' with Mickey Pierce throws slithers of squeaky colour over the top of juddering 'stuck' rhythms that seem to play with time, suddenly building in a polka-like melody over a stammering beat, before it all breaks down again.
'Perxoflyf' is the most straight-up dancefloor offering here. With thumping club kicks and cowbell, it's an odd, rubbery refrain, and that the only real melody comes in towards the end just leaves you hungry for more. Welcome back DVA.
