First comes Fantastish which has elements from many genres coming together in a house based form. With busy tech style percussion, from the start a mix of chunky beats and distorty sounds create a busy yet uncluttered vibe. While this is going on stabby high pitched melodies and a zippy synthline lead us to listen more as sublime pad chords give us a breather every so often. The groove is phat and the production is tight making it ripe for a busy dancefloor.
The second track is Funstuff and takes a different direction with a more subdued blend of throbbing bassline and airy synths that begin to pulsate as beckoning melodies invite us inside. In the midst of this darker tone a conga line is added along while the sounds are layered back and the atmosphere is taken deeper still with a tasty acid line.
It's a good release from Joel Mull with each track taking on a life of its own. Though you might expect it to bloom into hands in the air synth lines it doesn't, instead rumbling ahead with a neat and precise flow. It's house but not as we know it.
