Probably my favourite track is the equally peculiarly-titled Arms Too Short 2 Box With God, which is deep house, but with a techy bent and just a hint of acid towards the end. Quiet Times and Ground Down operate in that territory where progressive and deep house meet (for the first hour of a Digweed or Cattaneo set, for instance), while Punavuori Nights further expands the EP's house palette with its mellower pace and chill-out-style female vocal (though don't get it twisted, there's a little acid squelch to it as well and it's still aimed at the dancefloor).
The production throughout is sumptuous without being over-fussy or ornate, making this an EP that could find friends among househeads of many persuasions. To HEAR THESE TRACKS, click here.
