London-Berlin-straddling duo Aviram Barath and Robin Paul Braum – supporters including Bicep and Laurent Garnier – stand impressively correct with this glittering EP of contemporary, soul-swinging club jams.

The titular opener is particular case in point, slinky house 4-4 underpinning rippling synths, whispered vocals and wiggling b-line. “Yesterday” and “Can’t Make My Mind Up” offer up crisp electro funk-outs whilst “Fanfa” interweaves blasts of trumpet, deep strings and scything hi-hats with spellbinding impact. Innovative.
