A few eyebrows were raised when Future Times announced that the third installment of their popular Vibe compilation series would be spread across three 12" singles, rather than the double-pack they've previously used. Clearly, they've simply got too much high-grade material to share. Certainly, there's plenty of highlights on this second EP, from the ricocheting drum machine beats and new age melodies of Beautiful Swimmers' "Primo", to the fizzing techno rhythms and blissful, tuneful synthesizers of Eddy Alta's rather quite brilliant "First Sign of Artifice". With additional, high-grade fare from co-founders Protect-U and label newcomer Jeremy Hyman lurking on the flip, you'd be foolish not to grab a copy while you can.
