London-based Tender Hooks goes in for the kill on their second release, calling Lakosa and Rick Grant for beat duties - the former already having released on George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic. "Static" is an ice-cool house-techno hybrid with metallic percussion shots and a seriously killer collection of low-ends on top. "Temptations" is rawer and more minimalistic, where the driving pulse of the kick is accompanied by shredded snares and a lonely, wailing vocal. "Temptations" is re-touched by both Severn Beach, who adds in one of the wackiest FX-laden melodies we've heard in a while - making this the stand-out piece by a long shot - and Kornel Kovacs, who proceeds to add in a bit of early '90s rave juice thanks to a subtle influx of breaks and old-school vibes.
