Vendition regular Nine Lives is the undisputed master of the single-track release; last year, he impressed with the party-hearty, Stevie-aping electrofunk/breaks/disco fusion "Played In The Shade", which did enough on its own to require no B-sides or reworks. "Hooked" is another impressive solo missive, and again blends all manner of complimentary elements - clipped funk guitars, female vocal hooks, a chunky disco bassline and some unfussy drums - with decent results. There's little more to it than that, but there doesn't need to be; it rolls along on an incessant groove, with the odd percussive build or subtle change to keep things interesting.
