Pinning down Canadian producer Sean Roman can be tricky. At times, his productions glisten with a hazy disco sensibility, while at others they recall the powdery fluidity of Art Department and the Visionquest crew. Here, he pops up on the ever-reliable Under The Shade imprint with a trio of touchy-feely tracks variously influenced by electrofunk, classic house, synth-pop, UK bass and Italo. While "Games" - all undulating synth bass, hazy vocals, subtle disco guitars and baggy groove - has the most crossover potential, it's the string-laden, late night bounce of "It Doesn't Matter". This soft focus rave revival theme is continued on "Blinders", which drapes exotic samples and dense percussion over a booming UK garage groove.
