"Warm Chaos" is especially deadly, with a sticky synth hook and powerhouse drums buoyed by weighty sub-bass. Though the textures retain a touch of futurism, it's still one of the most approachable tracks in SHALT's discography, and wouldn't sound out of place on a dance floor-focused label like NAAFI.
As per usual with Astral Plane, the sound design is first-rate. That's especially true with "Seep," where it's not only inventive but technically adept. There are only a couple moments on ʃælt that match the alchemical creativity of his last EP, Inertia, but this EP is more focussed. "First Pulse," which is driven by military snares and big synths, nicely captures the zeitgeist of this corner of club music. Between the fresh ideas and the clean execution, it's bound to have a big impact on dance floors.
