Built on a frazzled melody and warming jets of soporific synths, "Brevity" is a beautiful piece of gauzy deep house. "Take Extra Care" sets its controls for the heart of the dance floor, its burbling bass keys, icy-crisp snares and ambient pads leading the charge to a subtle breakdown. "Rules" quickly descends into a bubbling morass of acid-tinged synths, through which a wintry drone blasts.
Ryan O'Gorman's re-rub of "Rules" (under his Soulade guise) complements rather than reconfigures the track, adding a drawn-out swell and clattering rim shots. Arkist adopts a peppier approach, unfurling a yawning bassline and subtly brutal kicks.
