Long before he became one of British dance music's most admired techno party-starters, Mella Dee was educated on the dancefloors of South Yorkshire's bassline clubs, and in particular notorious Sheffield venue Niche. Here he pays tribute to the iconic club in fine fashion on "Sidney Street" (the title is a reference to the club's most famous location). The title track may use thumping techno drums, but the rest of the cut's musical elements - memorable female vocal samples, echoing piano riffs and, most importantly, serious sub-bass pressure - come straight from the bassline playbook. He continues to pay tribute to the sound that shaped him elsewhere on the EP, too, from the bustling beats and memorable riffs of "Dev Green", to the deeper vibes of the dark garage bass-propelled "Copley Road".
