New Dublin based imprint Pogo Recordings honour some local heroes with their first release. TR One have been quietly bubbling under with some quality minimal house releases on London label Fine Art and Belfast's Nice & Nasty over the past few years and "It Ain't Hard To Tell" will add to their growing reputation. All three tracks are exercises in laying sounds atop each with a groove being found through off kilter rhythms. "Shit Ain't Worth It" takes it's cue from the more experimental Detroit mechanics as soft synth flourishes are surrounded by off key percussive elements until a jazzy hi-hat groove rises through the ether to guide the song forwards. The hypnotic qualities of the pensive melodies that seep through "Bombay" are broken only by the sudden emergence of a thumping beat. TR One round things off nicely with the deep dancefloor hues of "Sometime Again". Top release.
