Perhaps the most impressive thing about Oveous's second EP for BBE Music (he previously recorded on Yoruba Soul) is its infectious, unassuming soulfulness. For proof, check the poet, rapper and producer's opening salvo, Julian Steel collaboration "Applz", a soft-focus soulful house shuffle rich in warming musicality, topped off with a brilliant lead vocal. There's much to admire elsewhere across the EP, too. He takes to the mic once more on "Calculous", a sparkling, synth-heavy affair that adds D-Train style synths to a left-of-centre house groove that makes much use of tropical percussion that pays tributes to the New York based artist's Dominican roots, while Seven Davis Junior hook-up "Three Seasons" is a more up-tempo, P-Funk flavoured house workout.
