A key early NS track - IRL's syncopated 808/909 drumkit captured the manic energy of Chicago’s footwork movement at a UK-friendly 135bpm, while ominous monster island horns and sub-bass momentum references both Chicago and London in equal parts.

“Shade On” picks up where “IRL” left off with another synthed-out and syncopated excursion further into space.

Completing the trio is the sublime “Temple Keys”, on which the dreamy piano keys that give the track its name recall Detroit pioneer Mr De, while a pulsating worm of a sawtooth provides sweet after-hours ecstasy.

The digital EP inludes 2 remixes: Scratcha DVA reinterprets “IRL” with his “Hi Emotions” remix. Piling on the pressure, DVA builds on the monstrous vibe of the original until the rhythm is sweltering. Meanwhile then-newcommer French Fries‘ mix draws for tribal percussion and a massive jerking sub-bass, expanding “IRL” to its full bigroom potential.
