Sub Squared is the new sub-label from Project Squared, a UK imprint (which has since relocated to Australia) responsible for releasing Shifted's first remix. Sub Squared's UK roots are made loud and clear thanks to the stepped rhythms and bass-heavy swing of Siberian techno producer Ghostek, who incorporates dubstep and Blawan-esque techno in the tracks "No Way Out" and "Jaws". The quick two-step beats of "Vampires" look to garage for inspiration, while "Haunt You" is the EP's stand out, with warped R&B vocals and creepy Shackleton-like percussion slotted in amongst spacious and scuffling drums.
