"A Reason Not To Try" is a loose-limbed house cut with a moreish bass pattern and smears of moody marimba. But you may be put off by Reis's voice. A cracked drawl delivering a half-sung vocal, it merges into the background after several plays. Thankfully, "One Of A Kind" is an instrumental. Reis achieves a warm, East Coast house vibe through intelligent use of wooden percussion, which is joined by a smoky organ lick and spitting cymbals.
Herbert's take on the lead track toughens it up considerably. As ever, he doesn't choose a conventional route, combining drops of buzz-saw bass, a brutal tempo and chinking synths. Adopting a more commercial 4/4 approach, "Walkin & Talkin" shows off Reis's bass programming skills, and comes complete with a neat music box-style melody. It also proves his voice can just about carry off a tune.
