Tom Lonsborough and Col Hamilton, better known to most as 2 Billion Beats, return to their regular home of Paper Recordings with three tracks of synth-y contemporary disco. 'Down The Docks' has echoes of 80s synth-pop and centres around a fat squelchy bassline that's married to a jaunty, nagging keys riff. 'Empty Boulevard' (the pick for this writer) is a smoother ride that would slide nicely into deep or progressive house sets, while finally 'Beats Of No Nation' is a quirkier cut with multiple competing vocal samples and synths that get more and more acidic as the track progresses.
