The EP is a very direct dancefloor release: ‘Wisdom Tooth’ is the strongest cut, creating a late morning flavour with jack, bounce and seedy drums that sit very well in the mix. A2 ‘Previsioni’ is more like earlier Touane with deep pads and crisp hi-hats, not quite as tight as something like Andy Stott on Modern Love, but getting there. The B-side, however, is more disappointing: ‘Poesia’ and ‘Prosa’ are creations from the same studio session, and there’s a feeling of 12” filler about them. Of the two, ‘Prosa’ might be worth checking, it’s a noiser take on the A1.
Overall ‘Prosa’ is a little too cluttered and messy to stand out from the pack. Back to basics might be in order.
