Having recently remixed Reggie Dokes for Clone Royal Oak, they now turn up on the label with a two-track single that's easily their finest work yet. "Fantasy Check" opens up with a bright, melodic loop, swollen with resonance, that brings to mind The Avalanches' sun-drenched sound. The groove is bare-bones and easygoing, a matter of muted congas and skipping drum machines with plenty of bite in the claps and hi-hats. The bassline's a thing of beauty, full of motion and spark, but never overpowering, leaving the clean, assured piano chords to take the lead. Quite simply, it's a stunning track, one that—for the lovers and the dreamers, anyway—makes a perfect fit for the deep, resonant blue of the sky just before daybreak.
On the B-side, "Diane's Love" is a little cheekier; the vocal comes from a certain, ahem, supremely regarded soul singer. It's a simple track, mostly a matter of congas, muted chords, string vamps and busy filtering, but it pushes all the right buttons. House party vibes, through and through, with just a hint of devil-may-care attitude.
