Dreamy house that's both functional and ethereal.
The slow-burning "Big Trance" isn't exactly trance, but it is big. Over eight minutes, synth melodies bloom, recede and stutter, riding an insistent bounce that strengthens over time. "Tip Sonic" sounds closer to trance, with its brittle melodic accents and fulsome bass notes, though it's another smooth journey through creamy chord progressions. The carefree whistling lead of "Weo" seems to float above the ground, while "Buddon" is all top-down chunkiness. It's sweetened by an array of vocal samples, whose Western and Eastern scales waft over "Buddon" like smoke. Key3 is a strong EP that shows Enns' knack for pairing the functional with the ethereal in a very Vancouver way.
