|2.||"SB Dauntless" (5:30)|
For the latest release on his increasingly impressive WT Records imprint, William Burnett has turned to one of his closest buddies, Daywalker & CF partner John Beall. Predictably, he duly delivers a superb EP packed with varied highlights. The title track is particularly impressive, blending dreamy pads, twinkling pianos, cut-up vocals and a sumptuous groove to create a blissful chunk of lilting deep house. "DOHC" is notably rougher, with spine-tingling, sci-fi electronics and muted acid lines crowded round a thrusting techno groove. "Tri-State" brilliantly combines the horizontal chords of classic ambient with skittering IDM style breakbeats, before "SB Dauntless" takes two-step garage and submerges it in a vat of drifting chords and sparse electronic melodies.
