The title track comes in two mixes; the Main Version of "More Red Lights" is a modern fusion of new and old, with its melodious piano hook teasing away over heavyweight broken beats and crashing 909 cymbals. A pitching vocal line might point to some classic UK rave influences, but "More Red Lights" sounds as fresh a piece of techno-house as you will hear all year. The Dub Version is a more subtle affair, opening up the echo chambers on the snares and rims, and using a bouncing pad to drive the track through.
"Basium" keeps the continuity with a decidedly old school UK flavour. A dubby drum workout builds and builds with further female vox snippets and haunting ambience, never once letting up as the energy rises in a well thought out and precision production.
