There's something East Coast about "Deep N Raw"—like very early New Jersey garage done up with an art-school matte finish, as well as the current Wolf + Lamb, et al., wave. It's mixed with immaculate care—not one sharp edge anywhere, the aural equivalent of a nylon over a camera lens. It gives the track (and EP) a blurry, alluring quality, making the synth strings and drum machines seem more "organic," like they're emanating from wood cabinets rather than Funktion Ones or earbuds.
"Harlequin" is more '80s Chicago gone jazz-funk, with twining keyboard parts (an insistent, mid-pitched one is reminiscent of a clavinet) building to a graceful tension that a Miles-ian trumpet cools off. But the real heat comes on "Harlequin 808 Dub," where the production gauze serves to soften a dauntingly crisp, dry arrangement that's also rather sexy—whoever is behind it.
