Although the EP's called I Like, the one track featured is actually called Like Like. Go figure. In its original form, Like Like is a moody, beatdown-esque slow-builder with glitchy beats, some ominous rumbling bass and insistent minor piano chords. The Mr Pepper mix maintains the slo-mo feel but livelies up the percussion a tad for dancefloor purposes, while the Gerard Mix is a considerably more driving but still dark n' moody tech-house take that could have come straight outta East London (actually, I don't know where Gerard's from, so it might well have done). The standout for me, though, is the Ivan Fernandez Mix, a more musical and funkified pass in a deep/tech vein.
But like I said, with a range of mixes to choose from there'll be something to suit lots of tastes here.
