Having spent the last few months unleashing original productions, Spanish producer Rayko returns to his roots with another EP of delay-laden, synthesizer-heavy re-edits. In truth, few rework boogie and electrofunk gems quite as well as the Madrid-based man, so Sweet Somebody is undoubtedly welcome. Naturally, highlights come thick and fast. "Time To Move" expertly dubs out a chiming, loose and oh-so familiar mid-80s boogie classic, while "Sweet Somebody" offers a grandiose, immersive take on a big, Italo-influenced dancefloor-pop anthem. The chugging, intoxicating "Time" is, if anything, even better, with cut-up vocals and sharp guitars riding a dubby, chugging electrofunk groove. Finally, a big chunk of '80s soul gets the extended treatment on "This Is Your Time".
