Kicking off 2013 with a statement of intent, Halo Varga's welcomes scene veterans, Andrew Grant & Lomez, to the Surface stable. Opening up the EP, Evesham glides through jaunty deep house territory with a hazy synthy line and deep bassline and a full bodied bottom end. 'HipBurn' dives into pensive techy territory with mysterious, tension-building synth work and stabs. 'Sofie', the most skewed offering on the EP, is centered around a resonant synth line which twists and turns over its sprawling course. No.19 Label head, Nitin provides a beefed-up, metallic-drenched take on 'Sofie' and rounding off the release, 'Solidice' ends things on a left-of-centre, cosmic-tinged tip perfectly for suited for the afterhours floors. All in all, a well executed take on deep, discerning house music from Andrew Grant & Lomez.
