Chicago Skyway and Hakim Murphy's all-analogue debut release in their Pegasus Heat guise successfully pairs the former's spare, pulsing productions with the latter's more acid-leaning output. Opener "Candy Mountain" gradually heaves its way into life, with atmospheric synth inflections sparring alternately with a subtly pitched acid groove and what sounds like a heavily filtered organ from a vintage horror movie.
"Yum Yum" is unassuming to the point of being meditative. It's a simple concoction of thrumming beats, droning pads and synth chirrups that, with the addition of some spoken-word lines, wouldn't be out of place on DJ Sprinkles' Midtown 120 Blues. Ike Release's remix brings the sleepy original out from under the covers. Everything is more pronounced, from its punchy beat to the stabs of synth and the more-insistent pads. "Doorbell Action" is a low-speed acid rumbler in the mould of "Candy Mountain," with another weaving synth, this time framed by flashing, sparking percussion.
