With several releases for Trouble & Bass under their belts, Ursa Major return with another EP of lean, stripped back bass. The title track balances a churning dubstep bassline with sharp garage rhythms and warm keys, coming across like the perfect blend of classic dubstep and futuristic broken rhythms. "Test Match" meanwhile is characterised by its rigid percussive rattle and deep techno stabs, and will go down well with those who like their bass music sparse, rolling, and dark - recommended.
The eponymous track of the EP starts with a cavernous, echoing soundscape with bleeps flitting between gentle percussion and chopped up Ramadanman-style vocal. Developing into a positively piquant piece with dramatic strings and wallowing bassline, it segues nicely into "With You" - a more synth-drenched cut, steeped in heavy late night moodiness and underpinned by murky subs. "Crab Apple" is a more stripped back, gently pulsing 4/4 affair and "Congo" rounds things off in style bringing a funky edge in to the EP.
