Archie Hamilton is having a pretty good year, all told. Remarkably, this EP is his sixth of the year to date, following quietly confident appearances on Fuse London, Tied and Parliamnt. Impressively, there's a fair bit of variety to be found across the three tracks. Contrast, for example, the rolling tech-house/deep house fusion of opener "Confusion" - all tactile, looped riffs, rising acid lines and chunky beats - with the bouncy "Dos Equis", where woozy vocal samples ride an elastic, funk-fuelled bassline and locked-in beats. Arguably best of all, though, is flipside "Wild Thing" - a punchy late night workout full of trippy riffs, bustling bass, razor-sharp acid lines and jazzy-but-driving deep house beats.
