If you thought you knew what to expect by now from the Need For Mirrors fellas, just wait until you hear this. Reformatting their sound into dangerously sleek, streamlined compositions, this release takes influences from classic club styles and the darker end of the D&B spectrum. "Sacred Heart" itself is a breathtaking little number, managing to warp a standard roller into something special with vocals that could have been sliced off the top of a '90s garage cut and crispy production cinching in the bass and kicks. It's tight. "Beams" takes a lighter approach, drifting elegantly by with a tasty rattle on the hi-hat for good measure. "Pow Wow" switches up the techy vibes and "Disdain" gets dark and moody for a dance floor-driven stomp. Finally the beautifully old school "Red Shift" pushes a neat, spaced-out sound. A late entry but surely one of the EPs of the year.
