Track one “Don’t Ask, Don’t Get” has a subtle electro influence with its broken rhythms and upfront sound design. Chic and stylish, the track fuses contemporary ideas with timeless production to create something distinct and special.

“Make Me Wait” is second on the EP with a bubbling bassline that has a raw funk and rubbery aesthetics. Pulsating with a rippling vocal, there is something captivating about the dark yet uplifting groove of this quirky track. Unmistakably individual with an understated sound, this is House music as it should be.

Last up is “Real World” that has a bumping groove rich with moody atmosphere. Murky textures build into a prominent female vocal sample that sits amongst the shuffling rhythms of the intricate percussion. Infectious and quirky, this is proper Tech House with both credibility and intelligence.
