Daydreamer is a rather sober track, that builds tension, and breathes to certain acoustic samples. Then there’s Palms Trax’ remixes, the first focussing on the percussion, the second transforming it into a lush piece of deep house. And that’s not evening mentioning the two b-sides of the Shades EP, two unique and hypnotizing tracks that will safely escort you from the dancefloor.

There's very little house or techno in this week so I’m going to something about it and tell you all about this 12”. I’m sooooo nice.
The opening track here is pretty darn enjoyable. Its neither tech nor house to me just decent quality ‘lectronica with a nice catchy synth motif that gets stuck in your head worryingly quickly. The two remixes on side A don’t add too much to make the track better and are pleasant if non-essential.
Overleaf there are two more originals, the bouncy and floaty ‘Closure‘ which has the warmth of old school electronica such as Manual or early Caribou and the closing 'Shades' introduces a lovely heat hazed style with streaming synths and bouncing bass. A distorted, muffled vocal sits under the mix, ocassionally appearing out of the murk like shards of light.
A really good EP. Sequencing-wise I’d kind of preferred to have the two remixes at the end as the three original tracks work beautifully together. But I’m always going to have a gripe aren’t I?
