Belting collaboration here between Glasgow people Dam Mantle and the Free Association.

One side is taken up with this stealthy locked-down house stormer that seems to go on forever in the best possible way. Plenty of subtle knob-twiddling, pure percussive force, off-set rim-shots and dubbed-out delay make this relentless snake-in-the-grass of a track ebb and flow beautifully. Designed for "max dancefloor devastation", especially with that fierce, driving bass-scoop heaving you skywards by the seat of yr pants.

Some real nice dreamy Balearic basement rhythms on the flip. Two equally great tunes for slightly different stages in the night. For this is neon-lit seduction music to lose yourself in. These guys build just the kind of infectious deep and funky house music you would totally quit queuing at the bar for, only to get down on the lazer-caressed tiles with some smiling lovelies for the night. Proper exhilarating and classy material from start to finish, all the tracks laced with this implicit propulsive tribal edge and much acutely placed dream-world luster that ensures your attention never wanes. One word - sublime.
