Pledge pitches up on UKG/UK funky imprint LS2 for a two track foray into subterranean bass pressure. Lead cut "Coming Home" initially impresses with its smoky, clandestine atmosphere, but on repeat listens it's the skittering two-step percussion, delicious vocal cuts and organ stabs that really hit home. The same could be said of "Long Time Ago", which sounds like a late night tribute to classic British two-step; all simmering strings, booming basslines, female scat vocals and flexible beats. The whole thing sounds like it could have been made around 1999, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Both cuts are certainly impeccably produced.
