Berlin-based Haider Masroor made his Aus Music debut with the '10961' EP in 2019. Now he returns to Will Saul and Fink's label with another three-tracker that defies easy genre categorisation. 'Levitate', for instance, starts out epic and proggy but then breaks out into a kind of EBM/Italo/industrial fusion interlude in the middle, while 'Too Close' has echoes of Orb-style ambient house, hardcore, two-step and the kitchen ruddy sink! The standout, though, is 'Why So Blue?', a moody, broody but irresistible order to dance in which delicate, haunting keys and cut-up female vocal snips surf a surging, pulsating bassline to devastating effect.
