An interesting split Ep from Sheweytrax. LBE starts off side A with 'Electric Baby" , a track with a great 1980s minimalwave like electro feel, but with dance floor appeal as well. Synths sweep over dramatically while a powerful 808 beat propels forward the dancer/listener. "It cant be tonight" has a grittier feel with guitars and harder synth sounds, and the side is finished with a more techno influenced jam that has a detroit techno vibe . Ed States on the Bside offers three versions of 'diamond sky', with an uplifting old school chi-town house sensibility. Cybernetic voice effects samples and the occasional cowbell give it a warmth that will cheer up dancefloors. The instrumental works on its own with more focus on the beat, and the shorter version can be useful for shorter dj sets,
Cool release with a very keen nod to the underground.

This new vinyl release, 'LBE and Ed States - 'Electric Baby e.p.' is a split 12". Side A, offers three tracks by LBE (Live Better Electrically). He keeps the music as the main focus, without any (often - unnecessary - production tricks). There is an aura of early 80s proto - electro reflections, in the sound of the first two tracks, 'Electric Baby' and 'It Can't Be Tonight', while keeping a funky vibe, melted with gritty synth bursts and electro beats, with the third track, coming in strong, a special hybrid of 4/4 beat, electro - disco, pads and distorted lead melodies, while a dirty bass drives the track. On Side B, Ed States, offers three installments, of his 'Diamond Sky' track (vocals provided by Live Better Electrically). There is the main 'Ed's Lookout Mix', the 'Instrumental' and a shorter '3min Carat' mix. A gritty bassline sets the pace, a 4/4 beat, layered pads and distorted vocal phrases, have an almost hypnotic techno - disco effect.

As a whole, there is a high level of musical individuality, on both sides of this release, and that is something i always respect. If you like techno/electro/disco, in the form of a shiny, great sounding 12", this one is for you!
