In case you didn't get the memo, Wanderist is the new solo alias of Maarten Smeets, one half of popular Dutch deep house duo Detroit Swindle. This debut EP under the alias sets out his sonic agenda, offering a few reminders of what many enjoy about his better-known act's work - rich musicality, warm vibes, and positive melodies - while also exploring a different set of electronic music inspirations. The headline attraction is arguably '2r2t', a wonderfully tactile and melodious chunk of loved-up electro warmth that comes accompanied by a wavy ambient revision (lusciously saucer-eyed) and an acid-flecked Dawud remix that joins the dots between sci-fi techno and intergalactic deep house. Elsewhere, '9005' is a dark, muscular and hazy techno roller and 'Fog' is an analogue-rich take on spacey '80s electro.
