My Intentions (EP2) follows EP1 quite logically, though any apparent deficiency of imagination ends there. A dense brew of elastic, wormy bass and dissonant synth keys make for some wonderfully wonky downbeat listening.

All glued together with heavy, plasticised synthfunk basslines, each track wears its own individual character, however, varying from the simultaneously playful and nostalgic mood of 'Deep Seas', reminiscent of classic Rephlex Records, via a suggestion of Pierre Bastien's seesawing clockwork and mechanical dulcimer on 'Network Effect', to the interplanetary pings and destabilised science-fiction synths of 'Sole Intention', an elegant, glitch-driven groove with jazzy flourishes.

Perhaps reminiscent of Nosaj Thing or even a more clinical and eventful Flying Lotus or Dimlite. Followers of the recent resurgence in instrumental hip-hop need to check these records. Mastered at considerable expense by Hue Jah Fink, this one is perfect for fancy new headphones and sound systems alike.
