'Wake Up To The Source' bears a string arrangement close in construction to CC's Paperclip People classic 'Throw'... Its a great track, deeper than the rest & standing up to the test of time...

Great ep from Russ Gabriel, who imo doesn't get enough respect for the stuff he and his label were producing in the early to mid nineties.

The two tracks on the A side are the standouts. Wake Up To The Source is a lovely track with deep piano and strings over a pumping bass and driving, mutating rhythms.
Key Follow has a similarly deep vibe, with house drums underpining a shimmering melody.
Both sit in that (at the time of release) grey area between house and techno - and really they're not tech-house either. Sound great on a large bass lead system.

The AA isn't so good. Colin Dale's remix is 'Funky/Jazzy' without being either if you get me. Adventures of a New Jack just kind of doesn't work, the ryhthm keeps catching you out, sounding strangely too quick for itself.

Check out the Control EP for more of the same.
