Having previously shored up at Finale Sessions, Public System and Proper Trax in the past, Grey People makes a move towards Torn Hawk's Valcron Video with an EP of machine magic that touches on all manner of moods. "Cryogenically Frozen" is a hard-hitting slice of club tackle to get bodies jacking and sweat pouring, while "Coma Tunnel" takes a warmer approach without losing the boxy beats. The label boss then saddles up for a dreamy remix of "Coma Tunnel" that ramps up the reverb and creates a long form surrealist dream out of the original's component parts.
The first hook-up between Groove Junkies and Scott K, AfriAcid, was something of a success, so it's no surprise to see the two producers join forces once more. "Higher" comes in two forms: the 'Main Mix' and 'Dubstrumental'. The former boasts an Ursula Rucker style spoken word vocal - a poetic piece focusing on artistic inspiration and looking after each other in troubled times - over a simmering, string-laden tech-house groove. The strings, bassline and fizzing tech-house sounds come to the fore on the Dubstrumental, which also includes some sweaty drum machine fills, drawn-out builds, and all manner of dubbed-out vocal snippets
