Nikolai Reptile is Shadowax's debut EP on Trip, and in keeping with the label's overall approach, it's an off beat affair. It starts with the title track's low sub-bass, which supports indistinct vocals - possibly in Russian - before giving way to the equally off-beat "Ochen". There, a vocal is looped over a dense broken beat as Shadowax introduces more low end emissions. "What About Me" inhabits a space that is right at the edge of the dance floor, with minimal drums playing host to dark synths, before the high speed "Mortal Talking" ends the EP with a tempo that exceeds 170bpm.
