The title cut 'Hilario's Dream' leads the EP off with a deliberate bass line that comes with a spacious funk and a binding groove that lays the framework down perfectly. The composition grows and as it becomes surrounded by a wealth of scattered drums and bassy tones an airy synth fades to the forefront and heightens the senses mightily. It's a subtle element but with such amazing texture on chord changes it's sure to be a magic dance floor moment in the making.
The second original 'Taking Off' presents a slightly more progressive vibe with a jumping bass line, vocal stabs and shooting star sweeps. With some timely builds and outstanding bass modulation at just the right moments the energy escalates wonderfully towards the drop. A precisely crafted build during the breakdown should have both the strobes and dance floor on high alert for a massive moment when the bouncy groove drops back in for an epic finish.
The final original on the package 'Dubness' finds Nikko flying solo for a moody studio creation. A deep and ominous sounding groove roots the track as scarce vocal snips and wonderful panning tones create a wealth of depth. A short drop quickly transitions the piece to an effects laden section with some fabulous liquid sounding processing. The mood is very brooding, ominous and ideal for setting the atmosphere of a night.
