A classy blend of UK garage and minimal.
The rhythmic programming and sound set of "Cab Sauve" sits in the vintage El-B pocket, which is certainly no bad thing, and the sparse arrangement gives the drums space to flex. Falconer's bass work is also straight from the original playbook, but his emphasis on growling harmonics has attitude. Harry Wills, another noteworthy proponent of 2019 garage, adds extra garnish in his remix while staying within the confines of the original, providing a slightly more crowd-pleasing edge with vocal cuts and extra organ motifs.
Thanks to the introduction of smudged, dark blue pads, the B-side skews closer to the hybrid stylings coming out of Offenbach and elsewhere around Europe. "Seven Below Groove" has as much screwface swerve as the A-side, but the simple inclusion of those pads makes things feel horizontal in a way that original garage rarely did. It's a similar deal on the moodier "Where It Happens," whose chord progression is more reflective and melancholy than your average 2-step production. While Entity 005 flirts with revivalism, there's enough character to warrant the indulgence, and there's no arguing with how fun it is to both play and dance to these rhythms and basslines.
