The UK producer returns to Fabric-backed label Houndstooth for more old school-leaning house and techno. The title track is the deepest cut here, its moody bass and deep chords housing a ponderous vocal sample. From there on in, Hawkes turns towards a more primal approach. "Ave That" revolves around solid drums, heavy kicks and detuned riffs, while an indistinct sample mutters away. The standout track is "Jerk U Later". Equal parts vintage DBX and relentless Relief-style techno, its drums shuffle and its rhythm jacks to wave upon wave of noisy, shrieking analogue riffs. As far as interpretations of older sounds go, it's of the very highest quality.
