Dream EP

Tropical Animals
Ricardo Baez, the Toy Tonics alumnus and man behind Florence party and label concern Tropical Animals, drops three irresistibly moody cuts here. 'Fantasy Island' is dusty yet firm, a diva howl cutting through the gathering murk. 'луна', meanwhile, is a throbbing slab of chug, heavy on the reverb and clattering, punchy percussion (those claps!), where the brooding title track 'Dream' pulls together an abrasive bassline, 909 toms and a very wonky lead synth. One to spin folks the fuck out at 4am.
