Matteo Luis also makes a return following appearances on two EP’s for the label prior to this, while an exciting addition to the catalogue comes in the shape of Terron, most notably known for their work with Young Turks sub-label WHITIES. Up first on the release is Matteo Luis’ ‘Out Here’ setting the tone with ethereal pad swells, organic rhythms and choppy bass hits while a soft and brooding melodic tension subtly unwinds throughout the composition. Natureboy Gold’s ‘Eternal’ follows and employs a similarly airy synth feel while introducing a robust tom- driven rhythmic approach to create an understated dance-floor focused contribution. Opening the flip is Terron’s cryptically named ‘No.57, You Can’t Defeat Her, When You Meet Her You’ll Get What I Said’ which drops the tempo to a low slung feel with dubbed out bass licks, bumpy percussion and spiraling bass drones to create something idiosyncratic and psychedelic. Marlon Hoffstadt steps up to round off the package next with ‘2000MG Floating’ delivering a raw energetic workout with soaring 80’s tinged leads, snaking bass grooves and frenetic percussion.
