The On One EP consists of five tracks that sit somewhere on the house/techno border. One and Three are pretty much a straight-up techno affairs, albeit with a decidedly proggy slant on One. Two though is a much housier ditty with an old skool "party people in the house" vocal hook, and comes with a wonkier, quirkier I Am The Woodstar's Game Of Two Halfs Mix (sic). Finally, the Tim Lo-Fi Stoakes Wonkey Keys Mix of Three takes the track into more downtempo territory, in a tripped-out, uneasy listening kinda way.
I described Star-Fi once as 'doing strange new things with house and techno' and this EP is one of their more experimental offerings so far. It's the Chi-town flavours of Two that I'm feeling the most personally, but the EP as a whole definitely deserves your attention.
