Opening with a club ticking time bomb of a track, Smokey adheres to the desires of the dance floor with tension building beats and a swelling groove. Working off a vintage house warmth and storming rhythmic bass, Smokey is clad from head to toe in tight percussion and choppy vocal snatches as it parades a modern dance floor. Forcing its lengthy nine minutes into hypnotic peaks and troughs, this EP opener is rife with lazy synth waves and hyper appargiated b-lines.
Leaf follows with a dazzling spring its step; literally bouncing off the walls with a rubbery and uncontrollable heave to its rhythm. As electronic bleeps stab and crackling samples halt to begin, Leaf feels gleeful, playful and naughty. More to its make-up than initially meets the eye however, as it reaches the half way mark a twinkling melody of delicate keys and shimmering light lets us truly loose ourselves in its double sided persona.
Lastly, Run After saunters in between percussion shuffle and a deep, mysterious crawl. Managing to flit effortlessly between the tracks two rather contrasting edges, Run After appears dark and brooding under its percussive and sexy exterior. With splintering pockets of reverb and metallic sound bites galore, Run After draws the EPs dance floor atmosphere to an intriguing close.
