Detroiter Pontchartrain initially earned a reputation for delivering killer re-edits and sample-heavy house cuts that sit somewhere between remixes and original productions. This EP, though, is a little different. While it does contain a few sneaky samples here and there, it's effectively a showcase for his original productions. These are variously breezy, warm and melodious (the starry, soul-fired "Be Free"), and loopy and Balearic (the jangling Mediterranean guitars and layered percussion of "Loose"). Turn to the flip for two remixes of the title track: a rolling, riff-heavy peak-time excursion from Topher Horn and a brilliantly bass-heavy dancefloor Dub from Just Alexander.
