Make You sees Praveen Sharma and Travis 'Machinedrum' Stewart return to their Sepalcure project roughly a year after their last release together. Arriving through Hotflush Recordings, this five track collection immediately aligns itself to the adroit drum programming heartbreaking melodies, chopped guitar cuts and infectious tremelo vocals of previous Sepalcure output. Indeed the title track sees Sharma and Stewart lean on the oft-used money note skills of Whitney Houston, though the results are steadfastly more musically interesting than the numerous shallow house tracks that have emerged of late with a similar ploy at the core. "He Said No" gets the balance between hopeful and mournful just right, whilst the tunnelling drums of "The Water's Fine" shift in an out of focus in a manner that should sound immense on a proper system.
