Versa comes up trumps with this silky smooth three-track EP for On The Edge. "Shadow Movement" gets things started with warping atmospherics, crackling beats and pervasive sense of uneasiness. Rippling along with delicate chimes, choral elements and ticking percussion, it's a very beautiful entree. "Moon Light Dub" continues the subtlety with another very pleasing offering with tight, terse beats and sweeping atmospherics, before "No Speech Only Body & Mind" rounds things off with more thought-provoking swirling SFX and crisp beats.
Having previously appeared on the label On The Edge with the Shadow Movement EP last summer, Versa returns here to deliver his alluring fusion of Basic Channel style dub techno with a more modern approach to tech house. "Geometrics" is propped up by perfectly grainy dub chords, while the beats remain sharp and piercing. It's the fusion of those beats with the R&B vocal lick that brings the track into the here and now, even while the distinctive melodic element may be rooted in the good old days. "1989" allows a subtle flavour of classic electro into the mix, only to be offset by languid horns and stirring strings. "MCR FNK" gets a bit cheekier with its impeccable garage flex amidst further blue hues of synths, but there's no denying it's the dub that makes this EP.
