The key to success is to always move forward, something that this duo clearly know. Improving with every release Gerra & Stone have reached a new level with this EP. 'Too Deep' can do little to explain the intensity of this monstrous bass. The drum pattern has just enough life to lift itself to the drone of receptiveness which has become a staple go-to for the minimal/tech end of the spectrum. A standout track.

Written before Ferguson but souding sharper ever since, a living reclamation of soul away from technique/internal commitment and back to its outward-facing political roots. "What are these police on?/Theme song must be 'Who Shot Ya'?/Playing victim, what you want an Oscar?/Grant me a pass Mr. Officer/I’m face down in the mainstream while you pull the trigger to my back/The problem is that, the problem ain’t rap/Can you help me articulate that?" Gensu Dean's amazing, echo-chamber production only adds to the sense of impending doom and present terror. Utterly superb.
Never to be pigeonholed by genres, here underground hard dance star Geck-o makes a trap remix of a Eurodance track! And it’s great.
Genix’s productions always sound like they’ve been late night fretted over, regularly resulting in something that fair mushrooms out of the speakers. No exception, ‘Lux’ initially walks the high-wire between dark echoing, phased & delayed tech-trace and more atmospheric pad & chord-led arrangements. Break-side shafts of uplift filter in, but nothing that’ll quite prepare you for the overt uplift that’s but two minutes around the corner.
