It all looks good on paper: a fourth EP from a producer who's recently proven his mettle on one of the last decade's most revered labels with a guest vocal spot from one-half of current darlings House of House. Sadly these boxes are left unchecked by a signature sound that is becoming increasingly worn, a beat that is disablingly minimal and a general hodgepodge of stylistic cross-references that lacks cohesion. The quintessentially old-school chords that clang midway through "I Got A Feeling," for instance, are so cynically predictable that any real euphoric punch is conspicuously absent; and alongside Saheer Umar's crooned postulation that "love is a drug" it all resounds a tad too familiarly.
B-Side "Norfolfk Nights" offers more in the way of rhythmic interest and succeeds in creating an altogether broodier atmosphere, however an anticipated climax again fails to materialise leaving your hands halfway between your pockets and the air. It's not Shit, rather a case of Disappointing Robot.
