When they clicked at a showcase organized by Richy Ahmed last year, Ben Rau and the Jansons decided to join forces in the studio and make music together. This two-tracker showcases the first fruits of their collaborative labour. Lead cut "The Player" is particularly potent, with the fast-rising producers wrapping razor-sharp, mind-altering acid lines and sweaty female vocal samples around a booming, bass-heavy big room house groove. They change tack on "Le Fonque", employing dreamy electronics, breathless vocal snippets and jaunty, funk-fuelled bass on a touch chunk of mid-set deep house with definite funky house flourishes. It's nowhere near as muscular and breathless as its predecessor, but every bit as alluring.
