Spiral Arms EP

Aus Music
The first release of 2015 from Aus Music comes courtesy of Youandewan, and to use the parlance of our times, it's a fucking cracker. For our money, Ewan Smith, once of Leeds now of Berlin, has frequently threatened greatness. This is the sound of him achieving it. The three spine-tingling house tracks herein (plus a humping remix from Marquis Hawkes) will convince the thus-far unconvinced. 'Stak Poly Looms' layers fragile pads with skittering percussion in the most skilful manner. 'Isabel' flits from the dark side to the light, waiting until act three to unveil a devastating bassline. 'Fool Be Cool' is jacking acid melded with gorgeous garage. Oh, well done, sir. Well done.
