||2.||"Come" (feat Jessie Boykins III)|
||1.||"So Soon We Change"|
Canadian producer Zodiac (nee Jeremy Rose) was allegedly uncredited for his production on a record by The Weeknd, but now returns (fully credited) with his own EP for Jacques Greene's Vase label. What we get is five slices of exquisitely produced 'cerebral-hop', if you will. "GirlGirlGirl", basically takes an early 90s R&B sample and slows it right down, getting to a real grind pace, before draping it in silk sheets of seductive synths. "Come" is a bleepy, sleepy, slow jam with a Maxwell-style vocal from Jesse Boykins III. "Loss Config" is an unusual instrumental featuring a classical piano motif and "138", with its hands-in-the-air melodies and lilting beats, ends things on high. Classy stuff!
