Boomkat Product Review:
"Brief Encounter" on the A-side is a spacious slowhouse variation underpinned by that signature, colossal low-end padding. There's an almost Balearic influence in there somewhere, a melodic core that lives in the same universe as the Art of Noise's masterpiece "Moments in Love" - all melancholy and nostalgia, sunset vibes.
Over on the flipside "Drippin" is a rugged, demented beast that oddly keeps the same melodic, albeit woozy, element at its core. Misshapen synths get pushed high up in the mix over squashed percussion and mangled samples, vast bass weight keeping the whole thing from creasing in on itself. Hard to know where to place this music, think of Zomby, Martyn and Newworldaquarium poolside with a severe case of sunstroke and bourbon playing tricks on their minds.
