Blutch has been quietly going about his business since 2014, delivering sporadic slices of Balearic goodness and, most recently, bespoke deep house warmth. This latest EP could well be his most obviously peak-time focused released yet, with swinging, jazz-flecked opener "Dropin' a Chrome" delivering a weighty and attractive mix of bumpin', boompty-influenced deep house beats, lilting trumpet motifs, hip-hop vocal samples and seriously heavy analogue sub-bass. The disco-fired "Last Dance" - all Loleatta Holloway vocal samples, woozy chords and sturdy beats - explores similar territory, while "Ezra Was Not Right" sounds like a morning-fresh collaboration between "Eple"-era Royksopp and swinging deep houser Mall Grab. There's also a tasty bonus in the shape of Red Rack'em's dreamy and swirling remix of "Dropin' a Chrome", which includes some subtle nods towards Pepe Bradock classic "Deep Burnt".
