Given Dresvn's well-known links to Sotofett and company's Sex Tags Mania empire, it's unsurprising to find the eccentric Norwegian handling remix duties on their Honest Jon's debut. His melodious, driving, new age techno version of "First Voyage" is predictably special, though there's plenty to get excited about elsewhere. "Sleepy Bay" is a hazy, dubbed-out slice of sun-kissed wooziness, with flashes of blissful guitar flitting in and out of the mix like a half-remembered dream. Closer "Tipu Tip's Ghost" is arguably the EP's standout moment, though, and offers a particularly percussive take on low-slung dub-house, complete with backwards cymbals, wayward bells and spooky chords.
