'Keys to Life' feat. G-Tech is a raw edged, driving, underground banger. A dirty three-note baseline holds the whole thing together while fizzing hi-hats provide the counterpoint. The spoken word vocals from G-Tech (George Rontiris) place this firmly within the Detroit tradition - and this track will not be out of place alongside some of the greats of that scene.
Elsewhere on this release, the Kyodai Remix continues the vibe, but takes proceedings a shade deeper. A sublime, shuffling beat is particularly effective here, underpinning the twist the track takes around halfway into a more spacey direction.
'Fair Ride' completes the EP- and sees Echonomist in serious heads-down-house-mode. A sparkling synths, tight drum programming and a perfectly realized vocal loop meld to form a disco-tinged, deep house groover - look out for this one!
Exclusive to Beatport is the bonus track 'It Is What It Is'.
