With his classical training and day job as a professional vibraphonist, comparisons between Will Shore and previous New York dance music mavericks - most notably Arthur Russell and Kelley Polar - are natural. Certainly, he draws on NYC's fine tradition of genre-bending and far-sighted experimentation on this debut EP for Mister Saturday Night. Vibraphone-heavy opener "A Hundred Times", which pays tribute to legendary minimalist composer Steve Reich before building in intensity, is little short of brilliant. House DJs will naturally be drawn towards the lilting, vibraphone-laden deep house shuffle of early morning classic-in-waiting "The Translator", while similarly rhythmic closer "Components" is a woozy and dubbed-out chunk of mind-altering house exotica.
