Girl Unit returns with a double EP of his most advanced material yet. In true NS style we present 6 brand new transcendental club tracks from the super-hot producer. The Club Rez EP consists of two halves. The first is informed by lead cut "ENSEMBLE" - a mechanised Freestyle party track / robotic beach jam comprised of machine drums, Pulse bass and glossy John "Jellybean" Benitez-inspired breakdowns. The balance between pop sensibility and dancefloor bomb here is unparalleled. "CAKE BOSS" is a bull-headed tantrum in the club. A relentless blunt stabbing lead delivers punishment as rimshots clatter and toms jack around the 4x4 kick, the whole thing saturated in tape FX. A subway ride downtown leads to the "PLAZA", another Freestyle-influenced cut, sort of a trackier, loop-driven cousin of "Ensemble". Pro-1 horns and arping bass trade places with stripped back segments of rubbery, efficient drum funk. The tone for the EP's second half is set on with "DOUBLE TAKE", a cantankerous track that takes some drum programming cues from the Bay Area. As the hydraulics of the intro give way to the drop, the track is engulfed in gloopy bass hits and bubbling oily globules of leads to devastating effect. At the end the track segues into what GIrl Unit describes as a preview of "Double Take 2", fading out on an unexpected sublime moment. "REZDAY" (or Rezzurection Day), a relative of the EP's title track, is a sports action movie theme, built and reinforced for conflict. Colossal synth horns and layers of guitar synths are driven forward by extreme metal-style pedal kicks as pterodactyls scream and fireworks fizz overhead. Finally, "CLUB REZ". The crisp digital environment is quickly filled with searing beams of trance synths, growing to an overwhelming size before dropping out to a huge 808 kick pounding the track rhythmically (hence the 'Club' in the title). "Club Rez" echoes Girl Unit's previous work, but it's executed with such light-touch restraint, the results are truly euphoric....
