With releases on Nervous and Lost My Dog to his name, 25 year-old producer James Dexter is clearly going places. Here he pops up on legendary Chicagoan label Large with an impressively varied EP of floor-friendly flavas. Each of the three tracks should get major rotations, with the deep US garage flex of "Only You" - a kind of 21st century take on Local Talk style revivalism - most impressive. "Forward" is noticeably deeper and baggier, bumping along on a positive deep house flex thanks to a catchy bassline, snappy snares and some choice male vocal samples. The woozier "Never Guna Stop", meanwhile, sounds like a surprise hoedown between Solomun and the Wolf Music crew.
