Review

Following two 12's for cult Washington DC label Future Times last year, rising stars Protect U move to Vibrations for this four-track EP of foggy analogue house oddities. "Wild Drift" opens proceedings with a flowing piece of arpeggiated machine funk, shifting through a myriad of hazy moods, whilst "Ultra (Basic mix)" utilises a conga led rhythm and aquatic bassline in combination with a dramatic lead melody which evokes the complex moods of Legowelt's finest. This track is revisited on the flip, as "Slow Ultra" gives a reversion characterised by its shimmering, intertwining pads punctuated by a rich bassline, while the EP is closed by "Bright After Dark", undoubtedly the moodiest track of the bunch; foregoing the relatively rich melodies of its counterparts, it focuses instead on swampy atmospherics and an industrial squelch.
