Although Apiento's singles are few and far between, the London-based producer has a hit rate far higher than many of his Balearic-minded contemporaries. "Things You Do For Love", which marks the Test Pressing chief's first solo single for several years, provides further supporting evidence of this analysis. In its original form, the track is a slo-mo, delay-laden bubbler that sits somewhere between pitched-down early Larry Heard tracks and Junior Boys style glassy-eyed synth-pop. Arguably even better is the flipside "Heartbeat" revision, which turns the track into a rush-inducing slab of deep space ambient pop perfection.
