Soul Deep stay true to their ethos with a blinding debut EP from Athens-born liquid funk obsessive mSdoS. First track "Visionary" takes deep rolling bass and rapidfire hi-hats and adds his own special sampling touch to create something a little unusual. "Down To Monaco" is the thrillride you hoped it would be, given its Need For Speed-esque name. Winding through bright, jazzy brass and tough Amen breaks it's a no-nonsense soul-filled ride through the Riviera. Title track "Cosmic Keys" doesn't disappoint, as sci-fi sounds whip past and lighting fast breaks are sonically positioned somewhere in the great beyond. Big bass cements it as a perfect homage to early D&B while adding an interesting spin. Finally, "Dark Matter" builds tension and unease as dark, disturbing bass rolls through passing brass sections and faster-moving percussion. A strong EP that shows while a DJ at heart, mSdoS can produce like the best of them.
