Fans of the Naples sound ought to love this due to the playful melody work on A1, very reminiscent of the B1 track on the "Moving forward" EP by Shift Control (AKA Marco Carola). Nothing hard, just very elegant, slick and groovy. Funky techno heavy on house influences. It doesn't even run for too long so it stands well on its own as well.
B1 has Oneiric, slightly harder than the rest of the EP, but not harsh. Great pounding bass line and plenty of percussion. I could say it is a track that could sit well along Carola's stuff released on One Thousand Records. Very DJ friendly, imagine it as a slightly less agressive version of his tracks like Compressed or Danger.
The other two tracks are too long to be interesting and are bleak in ideas and competent sounds or structure. If you dropped them in a set, I can hardly imagine anybody taking a notice.
Anyways, if you are looking for a more moderate and soft side of early Marco Carola, then I recommend Design Music. For the rest of you, there is One Thousand.
