After listening to this EP like a fiend, I have a more mixed review of it. True, the tracks are mostly great, but as the duo stated themselves, they're still new at their craft.

Everglades evokes just that - exotic sounds woven into dense drum'n'bass, but it feels like it could have gone farther. Voidfield is a lovely atmospheric dnb track, with some great jazzy and spacey sounds and well-placed breakdowns and build-ups. I believe Santur is named for the use of the Persian Hammered Dulcimer of the same name, and it's another great atmospheric drum'n'bass piece, pulling more eastern influences into the piece, and my second favorite track of the four here.

The final piece is what made me seek this out. Blush is pure downtempo bliss for me, holding me rapt with a guitar and saxophone (which I usually dislike all-together), with other hazy background instrumentation and effects. This is one of those rare tracks I can replay for hours and still enjoy. Not complex, just beautiful. In the end, its not worth shelling out a lot of cash, but something to keep an eye open for.
