If you have prior experience of either Dublin label Lunar Disko or the producer Automatic Tasty, who hails from nearby Wicklow, you'll be familiar with both a sense of humour and accomplishment in production that lifts them a fair few iotas above the standard disco affair. This latest EP from the latter on the former demonstrates this perfectly, launching with the spoken word opener "Keep Your Receipt" which shows a cheeky idiosyncrasy absent from most records since Ninja Tune in it's late 90s pomp, whilst "Beannach Mhor" could easily be mistaken for Vibert under his Kerrier District alias, rewiring the think break to drive dreamy analogue clouds of 303. "Over The Hill" sounds like the sorely missed Italian duo Jollymusic reborn - all percussion scattering gleefully over a thick 101 bassline and outer galactic keys before dropping into a streamlined, dub-laden thrust. "Tropic Exchange" continues in this manner with dusty, jacked drum complemented by ever twinkling layers of keys and Lowlands style analogue bass, whilst "Small Hours" heads for the stars with colourful bursts of sonic texture filling the gaps between the 808 patterns.
