Mournful dub and experimental tracks inspired by Greek laïkó.
"Plegnic" is an obsolete term for a hammer-like blow. It nods to Papadatos's method of refreshing old-fashioned music, but sometimes the results, as well as being muddled, fail to connect the past and the present convincingly. "Dry Dub" is overloaded with stiff percussive tics and random Foley-esque effects, making the track's core idea hard to discern. "Fearless Dub"'s unsteady 3/4 beat sometimes churns into recursive loops, especially in the midsection. The vocalist Yorgia Karidi is a key presence on the EP's other two tracks. She surfaces amid "Umbro Dub"'s slo-mo howls of stadium airhorns and choral ghosts. "Temple Dub" introduces rave fragments into another haunted soundscape, through which Karidi's vocals are given even more space to float. When Papadatos turns to these smoky atmospheres, Plegnic strikes true.
