It's been three years since Linkwood wowed critics with the brilliant Expressions album on Firecracker Recordings. Here he returns with his first new material since, on a fresh label he founded to release "no frills 12-inches for DJs". Both tracks showcased here duly fit that remit. A-side "Mindmeld" is a fine chunk of unfussy deep house warmth, where metallic percussion and ebbing and flowing chords ride a rolling groove. "Nae Drama", on the other hand, is a fiendishly percussive affair - a stripped-back Afro-house workout that layers up drums and hand percussion, wild electronics and feverish tropical textures to ensure maximum dancefloor impact.
