Timesupis the pair's third EP following on from Mirage and their eponymous debut release. Launching with a collection of doomy footwork, their second effort gravitated towards the Night Slugs mode of bass house, with this one edging even closer: Opener "Timesup" begins in a somewhat over-dramatic fashion with a twinkly clock-is-ticking key stamp before comic knife swipe samples unleash the track's layers of throb and jukey elements. But instead of feeling menacing a sardonic air prevails, causing that track to fall flat."Water Bass Power" and "Wake Sleep" offer slightly different variants of the prescribed tumult of percussion, nestled in a bed of deep rolling bass, but all the melancholic synth work and ominous foot-infused subscapes sound too much like Girl Unit's Wut and I.R.L.EPs, causing Timesup overall to sound more Night Slugs than Nguzunguzu.
Kingdom's remix of "Timesup" adds a signature R&B vocal, sweeping it off its Chicago feet and transforming it into a lamenting urban ballad, but its Total Freedom's contribution that is the standout. The friendliest of the floor-fillers, he adds an intriguing dose of dark Shackleton-like minimalism to an otherwise too easily forgotten EP.
