A warm welcome back to impressive Icelandic producer Ilo, who here makes his first appearance on Colombian imprint Nomada Records some 11 months after his last outing on Tensnake's True Romance label (the must-check "Restart" EP). As you'd expect, he hits the ground running with EP opener "Home", a driving chunk of organ-sporting peak-time goodness rich in jazzy guitar flourishes, restless disco bass, cut-up female vocal samples and snappy machine drums, before upping the tempo on the equally jazzy but more undoubtedly more bass-heavy house workout "Whatever It Takes". The organs return to the fore on the deeper, woozier and altogether hazier "The Horns", while closing cut "Do Better" is a deliciously sleazy, percussive and sub-heavy late-night jack-track smothered in hissing, jazz-style cymbals.
