Policy first came to the fore with a debut release on Rush Hour's seemingly dormant Direct Current imprint back in 2011, focusing on the kind of summery, garage-indebted house music that called to mind Sepalcure and FaltyDL. A second release then followed on the highly active Rush Hour Recordings. Policy now brings his old school combination of shuffling drum machines, classic NYC electro and submerged funk to the Argot label with the Hit Gone bad EP. The title track is trippy in nature thanks to twinkling and transposing percussion, subject to quick fire flashes of disco that shoot across its face. Hallucinogenic synths then maneuver n sporadic burst in "Walk Up", while the deep and jazzy grooves of "Thick Nostalgia" are perfect for a lounge room waltz with a loved one or cheeky night cap.
