Two exciting artists appear on this cosmic EP.
Drew goes old-school with the approach of someone who worships rave music. "Hold Me," in its main "T4T Embrace Mix," is a loving assembly of an old Bob James break, a breathy diva vocal and a sultry riff. Everything happens at the right time, as if Drew were reconstructing one of her favourite tracks. "Trans Love Vibration (Eris Goes To Church)" is its more introspective sister, turning a Funky Drummer break meditative, reflecting the spiritual power of dance music Drew advocates.
Octo Octa's half explores atmospheric breakbeat house. The "Please Take Me Away Mix" of "Beam Me Up" practically levitates, while the coarser, clubbier "To The Goddess Mix" is heavier but no less nuanced. Where Octo Octa's tracks are polished to a sheen, Drew's are scuffed and retro, like the 25-year-old records she loves to play. Devotion feels like a cosmic collaboration between two artists operating at the peak of their powers.
