While it's recently become fashionable for bass music producers to jump ship and start making house, you could never accuse George Fitzgerald of being that cynical. Throughout his career, he's always infused his house productions with more than a healthy dollop of bass flavour, be it the rumble of garage or the crackly atmospherics of dubstep. This four-track EP continues that theme, featuring tracks that fuse pitched-down juke and tropical rhythms with the glistening gorgeousness of British deep house (see "Lights Out" and "Hindsight"). The two strongest cuts, "Unilateral" and "Child", are pretty much straight-up garage. Inspired by classic US productions from the tail end of the '90s, they're among the most obviously anthemic things Fitzgerald has produced to date.
