Ill Blu's debut for Numbers kicks off with the much talked about eponymous track of the EP. "Meltdown" acts as the perfect entree, with a reverberating vocal sample and a similar synth/bassline sound to Redlight's tune "Stupid". It makes for a compelling listen with plenty of dancefloor driven panache and synth flourishes colouring it along the way. "Overdose", up next, is more comparable to the aforementioned "Bellion" than any of the rest, building from a sparse intro with echoing cooing and tripping, crispy beats, into a more bleepy, high pitched main tune, masterfully counteracted by throbbing low end b-line action and jungle style chirrups. "Chelt" brings the EP to a close, with a more tech-ed up approach, accelerating into the drop with a clamour of jingling SFX, rumbling atmospherics and quirky, bubbling synths. Dreamy rippling waves drive things forward, underpinned by a thunderous b-line, making this another late night party starter and one to add to the record box if UK funky is your thing.
