Just like "Bax" last year, "Eva Mendes" has been getting a considerable amount of dubplate hype, perhaps surprising for such a straight-laced house track. But the proof lies in the track's deepest nether regions: Mosca's brand of tech house doesn't lack any of his previous music's considerable low-end impact, and "Eva Mendes" rides suave and nimble kicks over a tectonic bassline that thuds and skips underneath, the kind of thing that might weigh down any other producer's tracks. Couple that with throwback rave samples and a deranged, lightheaded chord progression and it wiggles into a loopy banger, striking an uncommon medium between tracky and anthemic.
"Accidentally" takes the bottom-heavy template and drops an anvil on it, a pseudo-techno writher repurposed into bouncy broken house. Robert Owens bleats his signature phrases all over the track, lending the throb a layer of pop that turns its low-end from menacing to Hot Creations-esque sleazy. "Murderous" also goes the vocal route, as an uncredited UK vocalist armed with a lighthearted croon duels with the track's dulcet mallet melody. Working with vocalists for the first time, Mosca conquers yet another genre with another accomplished release.
