The Cambridge to London-via-Barcelona producer takes two tracks from his forthcoming critically acclaimed album ‘Night & Day’ (due out 19th July) and gets Falty DL, Planet Mu head honcho Jake Slazenger, and garage/funk/2-stepper, Shortstuff in on the remix/refix treatment to whet the appetite and add a little je ne sais quois to the proceedings.

The exotically evocative “Coconut Coast” appears as the opener to the EP, in all its humming, singing, chiming and cooing glory; it’s a textured and experimental venture, showing Oriol Singhji’s evident prowess as a producer. With his impressive and wide-ranging spectrum of musical influences – from Detroit techno through electronica to house and even further afield to D&B and dubstep, the new Planet Mu signing should definitely be on the radar for discerning music fans from across the board. Falty DL then teases “Coconut Coast” into an altogether different shape; his interpretation is more tense, with a greater emphasis on the hazy vocal element and pared down rhythms.

“Memories” – another teaser from ‘Night & Day’ – is up next. Transformed into a simmering slice of rumbling bliss with overtones of UK funky by Jake Slazenger, the shuddering b-line and shimmering, glass-y tones add a certain poignancy to the mix. Shortstuff’s focus, on the other hand, is on the pervasive drone, the clapping beats and high pitched, distorted vocals which create a frantic ecstasy to the clink-beep 2 step tones which predominate throughout. A great way to round the EP off.
