D3 Elements clocks up release number five here by offering up a full EP to Zhao-Ski, who previously appeared on the VA EP release in 2014. What he serves up are a clutch of instrumental hip hop tracks that speak to the soul. Zhao-Ski has been a key figure on the Detroit scene for years. "Enter the Void" opens things up with louche, sun kissed beats that immediately brighten up your world. "Mischief Meadow" has tumbling drums, trilling keys and lots of dusty atmospherics and "Warning Signs" marries spoken world snippets with jazzy percussive, slowly funky drums and woozy pads that lull you into a wholly relaxed state. On the flip, "Tight and Upright" is all about the huge over sized drums, snares and cymbal splashes that are all miked up super closely, then "Time Reimagined" starts with some filmic and evocative vocals and sound design before a trumpet led groove unravels in stoned trip hop fashion.
