Colourful house from an exciting new producer.
In the vein of DJ Koze, Matthew Herbert and some of her fellow Studio Barnhus artists, Borbély also likes to offset niceness with weirdness. "Álom," a downtempo cut with twinkling organs at its core, achieves this with Daft Punk levels of vocoder on the warped vocals. There's also something a little sinister about the dialogue in "Barak" ("I'll be anything you want me to be"), which is otherwise a riotous house track with elements of jazz, funk and swing. "The Hours" plays it the straightest, but not to its detriment: it's the EP's standout, a gorgeous mixture of keys, strings and sax that deserves to stick around for festival season. There is a little wonkiness with the return of the same coarse synth line from last year's excellent "Is It Rude To Wear My Shades," but the track, like lots of what Borbély has done so far, is really something to luxuriate in.
