Philly's own bass champion Starkey is in stadium-filling mode on this new EP for Ninja Tune. Treated piano and strings, played out in a bombastic key and built up for maximum dramatic impact, abound on the lead track. Before long the fist-pumping synth grind more typical of Starkey comes screeching in for the last quarter - immense! Elsewhere the man is on more familiar territory with the agitated brap of "Blood Roses", and the chiming half-step of "Rayguns". The whole EP is blinding in its hyper-produced sheen, which should see it getting lapped up all over the shop, and rightly so.
