Dream Sequencer EP

MOS Deep
So many contemporary house producers strive but fail to reach the place Ike Release inhabits on 'Sequencer'. 'Westview' is the most conventional track on offer, with its jacking rhythm and heavy claps underscoring churning synth lines and a pirouetting acid line. Release gets more intense on 'Spells', its clipped drums and hissing percussion providing the basis for a surging wall of acid-coated bass, but the undisputed highlight is the raw beats and hardcore-evocative synths of 'Cosmic Supreme'.
