Having graduated from loopy disco-house edits to groovy deep house via releases on Quintessentials and Dirt Crew, Russia's Ponty Mython pops up on Stockholm's soul-inspired Swedish Brandy Productions. The EP's five tracks - including rubbery, jazz-inspired digital bonus "In The Hood" - touch on a variety of subtle deep house flavours, whilst retaining the required warmth and ear-pleasing musicality. Highlights are plentiful, from the zoned-out soul samples and cosmic chords of "Keep On Using Me" and sparkling "New Toys", to the straight-up, deep dancefloor bump of opener "I Wish". He even finds time to doff a cap to rave-era Chicago house, working bold stabs around a jazzy deep house groove on "Holly FM".
