Under A Different Sky is the first of three delectable and diverse tracks on the EP getting us in the mood with a smooth, deep and lush groove. A soft intro leads to some serious sub level bass action which follows a nice chunky kick drum and shuffling percussion combi. Soft keys, plucky basses and fluttering chords create a sublime experience on this gem of a track which is not to be missed.
Pralinka delivers a more club inspired dancefloor groove thanks to its super fresh drum arrangement and bouncy analogue bassline. The track works up a solid rhythm to get down to and the retro style piano stabs will ensure that the booty's are shakin' long into the night.
Ocean Parade is a beautiful example of contemporary dance music given a classic construction to meet the demands of the dancefloor. A smooth shuffling percussion section is led by a nice kick drum delivering a flowing rhythm. An offset bassline probes through the groove as the main event plays out in the form of old school pianos that are sure to get the hands in the air, a must have.
