The hardcore influence is most obvious on "Fantazia" and "Limelight." Featuring a vocal from Medvešek, "Limelight" is especially excellent, hurtling between chunky house and funky hardcore. And while she's great at reproducing these sounds, her big-room production style really brings the tracks to life. That's why the breakbeat hardcore of "Fantasia" sounds fresh, not nostalgic.
Across the rest of Sanctuary Medvešek goes somewhere else altogether. The title track is manic club music, where needlepoint strings spar with drums that pop up at random places like a game of whack-a-mole. "Tarmac" is even more out-there. Medvešek twists EDM-style trap with constant left turns and a trigger-happy grip on the hi-hats. Each track offers a different spin on how to rock a dance floor.
