Hands Up is the new project from machine purists, the Analogue Cops and Cadenza's Alex Picone, who, by the sound of it, has been fully converted to their analogue manifesto. "Alien" starts things off with a luscious tape-hissed kick drum placed above a fuzzy, off-beat melody which is then rapidly followed by a rising sequence of euphoric strings, and before you know it, you're thrown head-first into a killer power house bomb reminiscent of those mythical Maurizio moments in the 90's. On the B-side, 'Talk Good' makes crispy hi-hats and sharp snares circle progressively around a haunting bassline, making this a killer techno track built for the dance floor. This EP is yet more proof of both the quality that's coming out of the Restoration/Appointment camp and their choice of collaborations.
