"Arctic Travel" is a laid-back epic, if there ever was such a thing. It spreads out over a languorous ten minutes, built on D. Tiffany's bassline—think an old Chicago house record, drunk and stumbling a bit—with icy pads and dubby chords over the top. It sounds like they're making it up as they go, and it's never less than captivating, the kind of half-lidded jam that throws just enough at you to maintain interest.
That track alone would be enough to make a great 12-inch, but the solo efforts on the B-side sweeten the deal. Bobby Draino dresses down for "Another Vibe (Lolo's House Mix)," a rawer acid house track cushioned by soft, downy pads. On the balmy side of things, D. Tiffany's "Green-T" bathes its bassline in mist. A barely-there synth line makes it the after-afterhours counterpart to "Arctic Travel." Both tracks have a live feel, with playful modulation equally suited to zoning out and dancing. After star turns from Jack J and Florist last year, Arctic Travel marks Bobby Draino and D. Tiffany as the latest Vancouver acts to look out for.
