As the title suggests, this split EP from Mak and Pasteman is something of a throwback to simpler times. More specifically, it offers up a quartet of cuts inspired by the halcyon days of UK garage. Mak's deep and delicious "Work On You" apes late '90s two-step, throwing in some New Jersey garage and Todd Edwards-ish vocal stabs. Pasteman's "Beggin It" goes for more of a 4/4 flex -complete with warped dark garage bassline - while Mak's bass-heavy, breakdown happy "Cameo" is bursting with chiming melodies. Best of all, though, is Pasteman's "Thinking of You", which mixes classic US house and early garage to superb effect.
