It's been three years since Berlin-based producer Honesty (AKA Honey Drop) last released an EP. This three-tracker, then, is well overdue. Happily, he's in fine form throughout, delivering cuts that bristle with dancefloor intensity while offering enough attractive bagginess to impress those who don't like their tech-house to be too rigid. Arguably the most impressive of the three cuts is "Cascais", a warming trip into deep dub-house territory that benefits greatly from twinkling pianos, sun-kissed guitars and reverberating chords. Those looking for more heads-down fare should check the Dub Mix of "Big Sur" - typically Germanic late night tech-house with a hypnotic twist - while the Pacific Mix of the same track is almost Balearic in its gently rising, melodic approach. It sounds like it comes from a bygone age of warm, sun-flecked techno, which adds to its sinewy charm.
