Aside from bringing attention to the brilliantly deranged Honey badger, an animal whose thuggish disregard for nature's food chain can only be applauded, Lovebirds deserve props for three further examples of his knack of fusing classic strains of disco with a contemporary house bump. Arriving on the Teardrop imprint that putout their seminal take on "Love & Happiness", the Honey Badger EP sees Sebastian Doring in fine form. "Chasing Things" positively glides across the A Side, with a neat contrast in elements as the melodic elements are treated to all manner of subaqueous filtration, allowing the crisp bumping rhythms the sort of prominence that we imagine sounds sublime on a boat just off the Petrcane coast. Elsewhere, "Running Backwards" is a master class in switching moods within the duration of a track whilst "Don't Give A Shit" heads for some straight up filtered disco ish.
