Discreet Moment Thing - (5:13) 123 BPM
Lady Cherry - (5:42) 120 BPM
Review: After three years away, Maurice Uzzan has returned to the Life & Death label with a two-part EP that cannily showcases the growing depth, variety and complexity of his dancefloor-focused productions. 'Discreet Moment Thing', the title track of the dual EP, kicks off this second volume, offering an attractively pulsating, occasionally foreboding workout that boasts distinctive nods towards both EBM and new beat - all stabbing, sequenced synth-bass, stuttering (and decidedly hallucinatory) vocal samples, sweaty drums and jacking intent. He moves further back in time for inspiration on 'Lady Cherry', whose warming chords, squelchy synth bass, twinkling keys, unfussy machine drums and pleasingly 1980s-sounding lead lines sound like they were inspired by Pet Shop Boys' first two albums.
