This unlikely duo have matured nicely since the instant attention brought by their first single "Thou Shalt Always Kill," and this EP is a fine showcase of their evolving sound. Spoken word don Scroobious lays down his flow nicely over "Sick Tonight's" fast, D&B-tempo beats, while "Great Britain" has a more dirty electro feel, complete with some bubbly synth work. The remixes are just as strong, with Doctor P turning "Sick Tonight" into a heavy dubstep stomper, Mumdance working his grimey magic on a slowed-down "Great Britain" and Sampha turning "Sick Tonight" into a woozy and dreamy hip-hop soundscape.
Julian Peck (aka Fear of Theydon) has been an institution at Rob Da Bank's Sunday Best label for many years now, trusted to provide a refreshing alternative to their releases as their in-house producer. Finally, they've compiled the best of his mixes and his skills as a Balearic, cosmic-disco leaning producer really shine over these twelve tracks. The Aeroplane-ish treatment of Bastila's "Ghosts", the slo-mo waltz of his remake of David Lynch's "God Day Today", the Art of Noise-esque "Paganini Rocks" (originally by Robortom) are all stand outs from a very essential collection.
