Curiously, Julio Victoria has previously contributed tracks to several compilations but has never released an EP of his own. Top marks to Church then for giving him a belated opportunity to showcase his wares via a much-deserved debut EP. Title track "Astrolabe" is particularly wonderful: a languid, shuffling exercise in softly-spun deep house dreaminess rich in ambient chords, clicking top-end percussion, groovy beats and ghostly electronics. Elsewhere, "Evasion" is a raw and sleazy chunk of Latin-influenced tribal house blessed with metallic stabs, while closing cut "Tres" is a gently jazzy, ultra-deep house track that's as enveloping as a bear hug from Phil Jupitus and infinitely more seductive.
