It's not exactly lo-fi, but it's definitely no-frills; "Sketches Pt. 1" has Craig's trademark syncopated chords and a nimble little triangle pattern, but there's a curious dryness to the mix, and it often feels like there's an element missing, as though the track had been recorded with the snares accidentally muted. (In fact, half of the track doesn't even have a kick drum.)
The loping electro of "Sketches Pt. 2" feels even more like a demo, and "Sketches Pt. 5" is just two minutes of rudimentary 808. Not that there's anything wrong with that; DJs need tools, and, paired with a something like Kowton's "Des Bisous," the beat gets the job done, punching through like one of General Motors' riveting machines. Parts four and six come the closest to Craig's usual standards. The former is threaded with the tensile ostinato of his most epic tracks, while the latter plays augmented chords off a chest-caressing bassline.
