''saturn' is great - deep, ethereal, yet with a really satisfying, chunky rhythm track leveling it out. i've just listened to it three times on the bounce and am going in again, in a second. i also really enjoyed 'it's alright' - very much in tune with the vibe that runs through the whole ep, but with just enough tweaks to keep it fresh. top stuff here, will be buying when it comes out'
