This is release number 6 for the label and it is another absolute gem. First up is the EP’s title track Happy Monday. The track begins with a lonely beat, clicky finger snaps, and laid-back percussion. In the background there are blurred, spacey and melodic synths and atmospheres. The track shuffles along as the melancholic voice of the very talented Undo are introduced. Overall this track has a very electro-pop new wave feel to it. Next up is Welcome. Welcome has a groovier rhythm and is characterised by a bouncy bass-line, smooth pads and stabbing electro synths. On the flip is the final track titled The Sparrow. It starts of with lush pad sounds before the beat drops to then introduce a grungy synth sound. As the tracks continues twisted effects are layered over the mix.
This is a sensational EP, the standout is the main track Happy Monday with the brilliant vocals by Undo. This is definitely a release that should be in the boxes of every Tech House DJ. If you like this one make sure you try and dig up their previous release (Spare Time – The Phantom Car) which is equally brilliant.
