Grumbly and greyscale, the effect of these tracks is often more physical than audible. You'll need a decent system or they'll probably fall a little flat. "Head On" feels as if it were all low-end, minus some warbly synth that coughs intermittently like a dying dial-up modem. It's driven by a bassline that would make Shackleton jealous. "The Mechanics Of Joy" takes the basic elements of a Moeller banger—dubby and straight-ahead—and stretches it into a tantric feat, battering a simple melody until it's swollen but refusing climax.
The flipside is more dynamic. "More Instinct" sends its grotty bassline through an obstacle course of sounds, striking pockets of low-end landmines. Ending the EP how it started, "Crossing Over" keeps the lid on, leaving the groove at a steady simmer.
