Sam Reeves' Ownglow project is the perfect move for long-time London d&b label, Hospital Records. That's because Reeves has managed to retain the label's original 'liquid' sensibility while still pushing things forwards and keeping his mixes interesting and fresh. "Angels Sing", for example, is a delightful blend of fast, aqueous breaks and gentle lyricism, a mood that is kept alive and running on the more uplifting sounds of "Stress & Strain". "The Night Is Still Young" features the vocals of Blake, and it surely has to be the winner on here; it's exactly the sort of poppy strain of d&b that made this label what it is today. "Only U (Real Quick)", however, is the deepest and most majestic track of the EP - our favourite to be precise - and it reminds us of Logistics at his best, a formula will hope will resurface and prosper like it once did.
