Opening the EP with TOUCHING: A classic house influenced track with sorted organ chord progressions. A distant melody that sweeps up from time to time, as well as some vocal cuts that bring this track to life. Welcome to the future of house!
TALISMAN comes up as the title track and perhaps affords the magic of those low pass filtered synth stabs to break through the indie dance like beat sections and the mystical pad environment. It allows the track to breathe, being a unique piece of modern deep house music and for sure having a solid base built for shaking a whole EDM movement.
Third track TROUBLE MAKER shows some more tech house roots of the Squad. Bringing out a tribalish beat pattern, set up with certain organish background effects and marking the groove with a taste of oldschool house chords. In the break downs a rhodes piano turns it all into a melodic and dreamy section, before a male vocal choir adumbrates the rhodes and brings the track to raise, till it drops with some shaky percussions and filthy synth chords on top of a hammering 808 kick drum.
