First up we have Expression which takes us deep into the house music abyss with a surreal, experimental style that becomes infectious right off the bat. The intro boasts a steady pulsing note to the backdrop of eerie FX and a haunting pad. A retro style chord stab breaks through the deeper elements and teases us for the duration. That eerie vibe continues as a superb low end bass comes through to dominate the sound taking the groove even deeper. An array of cool FX and sound textures are present giving this one a movie score kinda feeling. Top notch stuff.
Jubileo intros with a cool, bright and crispy hi hat alongside a slow pulsing pad. Tribal style drums fade in before a monster kick drum takes over to deliver us deep into the groove. On the low end a sub rattling bass gets into full effect with chest pounding force. The track takes on a dark persona that locks us in thanks to that fantastic kick drum and the bassline. The percussions create a solid rhythm helped along by cool vocal shots. A definite must have track for sure.
Mother Fucker sets off with a somewhat subdued kick drum and subtle hat combi before the lower frequencies are let loose on the kicks creating a solid pumping beat. Percussions start to form up and a cool rhythmic flow develops. Expertly crafted FX and a very cool synth line add textured layers keeping the groove deep. The bass bins will certainly get a work out when the bass drops on this one so be prepared for the floors to shudder. Throughout the track a low spoken vocal delivers a few lines to add a dark character to the sound. Superb stuff that will be a welcome addition to those late night sessions.
