I bought this for Make Believe, which is a very enjoyable piece of spaced out vocal cheese. Ring the Alarm has a nice bouncy groove too. Unfortunately my plate is a dud on Ring the Alarm. There's some wonky pitch bending going on throughout the tune which is subtle at first, but once you hear it it cannot be unheard. It's sounds like a pressing defect as the bending effect cannot be heard on the digital versions of the tune I bought too. I would recommend caution if Ring the Alarm is the tune you are looking for. Listen in person (if possible) to prevent buyers remorse.

Hopefully the issue is specific to my plate and not on all of them. My copy plays perfectly fine on the B1/B2 side.

Expressions (and Fokuz too, for that matter) is str8up ON FIRE right now. The past handful of releases, particularly this, the Rowpieces EP, and 010 are gorgeous, timeless pieces of DnB, masterfully crafting an elegant dichotomy of brains and booty, aka headphones and dancefloor. I'm amazed Redeyes and Juno still have copies of (as of 4.8.15) of 011-016. A few years ago I was hesitant on multiple tracks on same-sides of a 12", but the output on these EPs is a negligible compromise considering the high bang-for-your-buck. Looking forward to hearing more of Vandera in the future! A++ 10/10 100% massif.

Kinda dissapointed with instrumental version of "Ring the alarm", sounds borring without Lickz vocals, but the "Sparking Up" is the best one for me on this 12''.
