A remix EP here that marks the last release of Jay Haze's Contexterrior and Tuning Spork imprints, with one side dedicated to each label. The Contexterrior side sees two reworkings of "I Wait For You"; Laila Tov's vocals gave the original a fairly Latin sensibility, but King Britt's remix elects to create a much more atmospheric version, beginning with a moody piano intro, before launching into a rumbling bassline that brings out the darker qualities in the original vocal. Bozoo Bajou meanwhile creates a much more minimal interpretation, really highlighting the breathier elements of the vocal, before the track breaks into something altogether more melancholy as it brings in some understated piano chords. The Tuning Spork side meanwhile sees Reboot remixing his own collaboration with Jay Haze, "My Baby Knows". His reworking takes away the sleazier tone of the original, bringing the melancholy piano to the forefront and creating something altogether more soulful, keeping Lil Dirty Ghetto Bastard's vocals until the end and pitching them right down, ending on a curiously sedate note.
