"Chains" immediately feels svelte and spacious, and its drums are extra slinky as a result, dangling and spinning around the main flute riff like a loop from a psychedelic Hessle Audio track. "Gold Bones" is a hybrid of UK funky and dembow, complete with ultra-flat basslines that could have come from an early Roska tune. "Charm Complex" takes things down to a narcoleptic state, staggering around like it can barely stand up. It sounds like a trap banger with the joints unscrewed.
Those three alone would make a fine EP, but some of Infinite Machine's power comes from the remixes it commissions, a handy way for different crews and sounds to mingle. Tropical Waste's Iydes, from London, turns "Chain" into a speedy dancehall workout, while Luke West's rework of "Gold Bones" puts an irresistible tribal spin on things. They round out a package that highlights an exciting new artist and underlines the savvy of the label hosting him.
