A1: Breakbeat/House: Simply stunning baseline on which everything hangs. Very effective vocal brings to mind Primal Scream's Echo Dek though there's a significant Hip-Hop vocal in there too. There is a great groove to this except at breakdown time when it all gets a little too loose and hold's back it. [NINE]
A2: Dub: Not normally my thing at all so not best placed to judge. However there is a quality to it so if you are happy in this territory it's worth a listen. [SEVEN]
B1: Breakbeat: All over the shop. Sound like it's a remix being done on the fly. Someone just trying stuff to see if it works or not. It doesn't. [THREE]
B2: Techno (Vocal). Underworld sound especially with the vocal style but it's more grooving than their normal output. Lovely wooly baseline with operatic/Kate Bush vocal sample. Track to get lost in. Perhaps not enough progression to be absolutely top drawer but it hits upon a little alchemy and who would blame it for staying there. [TEN]
