Over the past 28 months, Hurlee has showcased his wares on a variety of well-regarded labels, including Papa, Mood Funk and Frigo Vide. On this latest three-track missive, he's pitched up on Dikso in order to demonstrate his grasp of summery disco-house dynamics. The warm, tactile and bouncy "New Life" is our pick of the bunch. It not only boasts chunky drums and some suitably warm and melodious filtered loops, but also some suitably rush-inducing female vocal samples (taken not from a disco record, but what appears to be a superior '80s pop record). Freiboitar's slightly beefier and loopier remix is decent, too, but lacks the spine-tingling vocal breakdowns that mark out Hurlee's original version. The EP is completed by the cheery, horn-heavy disco-house bump of "Old Friend".
