It's been sometime since we've heard a solo EP from Erol Alkan - in fact - this is the first time we've heard a solo EP from Erol Alkan. After years of remixing, editing, collaborating - non-stop DJing - and sometimes bass-playing for indie band Late Of The Pier, his debut proper comes through his own Phantasy Sound label. "A Hold On Love, with it's progressive, filtered chords, is one for the festival stages of summer, while "Bang!" sees Alkan deliver some dubby, jacked up techno similar to John Heckle. Alkan then provides some left of field sampling techniques to the breakbeat and synth zapping "Check Out Your Mind".
