Having previously plied his trade exclusively on Germany's Toy Tonics imprint, Ricardo Baez pops up on long-running Polish imprint Exotic Refreshment. While much of his previous material has been warm, rich and classic sounding in nature, EP opener "Butoh" is raw and rugged, with waves of electronic melodies and creepy, one-note chords riding a clandestine, tech-house groove. "I Need You" flips the script, offering a deeper, woozier alternative cut built around robust acid bass and whispered vocals. Baez's originals are complimented by a trio of quietly impressive remixes; a bustling, jollier take on "Butoh" from David Jach, and fine, surprisingly immersive deep house rubs of "I Need You" by Edgar Peng and Fragile Signal.
