Obalski's 2014 debut for Public Possession, Introducing Obalski, was something of an under-the-radar gem - an imaginative collection of vaguely Balearic, slightly experimental nuggets that refused to settle on one dancefloor-minded style. This follow-up is similarly inclined. The A-side, for example, inhabits that same audio space as Jan Schulte's various projects - think starry chords and gentle melodies, fused with quirky, soft-touch bongo rhythms - while the first track on the B skillfully melds spacey, Detroit-influenced chords and twinkling tunefulness with a locked-in deep house groove. Arguably best of all, though, is the dub house-meets-future Balearica flex of the oh-so-sweet second B-side cut.
