The EP's two original cuts are not what we've come to expect from DJ Tennis's label. Far from the dark and stormy tech house of Mind Against or the melodic electronica of Tennis himself, the title track is a big, poppy dance record, better suited to festival stages than club floors. As Sjodin's snappy vocals echo across far-reaching strings, propped up by a 140 BPM pulse, it's not hard to envision a sea of revellers moving in appreciation. Âme do a tidy job of turning it into a sure-fire big room favourite, mapping the full vocal to glistening synths and a low-slung bassline. The fact that the beat doesn't kick in until halfway shows you the kind of hands-in-the-air moment the Berliners were aiming for.
"Boys And Girls," on the other hand, lacks the feel-good appeal of the other tracks. It's framed around a sluggish beat that only serves to highlight Sjodin's singing as soppy and overdone. This EP might sit awkwardly alongside the rest of the Life And Death catalogue, but its crossover appeal means it could be the label's biggest release yet.
