We've not been short on material from lion of Lyon Ethyene of late. Impressively, Essence of Adolescence is the Moonrise Hill Material co-founder's fifth solo EP in the past 18 months. As usual, the five-track set is packed with dusty, jazz-flecked samples, sumptuously soulful musicality, and the kind of slinky, sun-kissed grooves that seem to shimmy from the speakers in a haze of high-grade smoke. Along the way, he fuses deep house with starry jazz-funk ("Time Flies Baby"), sultry modern soul (impeccable, vocal-laden loop jam "Cherish The Day") and string-drenched Philadelphia disco (bouncy shuffler "A Common Soul"). Typically, he's also included a bonus instrumental hip-hop workout ("E-Fuel Ov'me").
