The tracks sound all really good, like the previous reviewer said - really beautiful music. Although the ideas behind the tracks are really great, they do feel very repetitive. Yes, I know, house music is repetitive in it's nature, but here this principle is taken to the extreme. When I listened to the record I felt the the tracks being so repetitive that when I started to listen more carefully I was kinda shocked to find out the tracks are basically just a few loops repeated over and over again. No changes musically. It sounds even more stable than techno - the drum patterns don't change, the music doesn't change, just loops. The good rules of composing house music is that the music should change after every 16 bar, adding new sounds or taking them out, but this is not the case for this record. So essentially, the tracks are DJ tools - you'll have to be creative with these in your sets!

This EP consists of some really beautiful music. A1 - Aphrodisiac - is precisely that; a sensuous, mysterious piece of music that enwebs the listener. A2 - Lonely - is an empty but nontheless deep and emotional groove. Very hypnotic with lush vibes floating on top, just like a very fast moving plane skimming across the peaks of billowing clouds (a strange, yet I feel appropriate analogy). B1 - Rain - is rather similar to Aphrodisiac, but carries a more demanding beat, really thumping through. Again, as with all of the tracks on the EP, this is a very ethereal, intricately constructed groove; heavenly one could say. B2 - Breeze - is a great track to wind up an outstanding coterie of tracks. Slowing the tempo down to a lazy Sunday pace, this track meanders (in a good way) with a nice, what sounds like, 60s or 70s soul sample holding it all down. A criminally underrated collection of tracks in my opinion. Put the stereo or the headphones on and soak up the beauty; it will not dissapoint.
