||2.||"My Love (Vinyl Only)" (5:38)|
It's a welcome return to FUSE for one of the London institution's main players in Rich NXT with What's In The Box (Seven reference anyone?) his first full release for the label in almost a year. Deep and dubby is how "Defy" rolls, a track largely defined by its playful keys, fizzing textures, and non-stop crisp groove, whilst the vinyl only "My Love" is a much more stripped back affair with the occasional vocal sample adding colour to a sparse production. On the B-side, "Twang" throws some Chi-town keys into the mixer before deviating into a rubbery sound that no doubt informed the title and "Cannonball" closes out the record with six minutes of minimal house brimming with atmosphere.
