    The EP is formulated to span the variety of influences indicative of the label's sound, characterized by each artist's uniquely different offering. Keep Coming is an outstanding introduction to Liam Geddes, an incredibly tight production with a heavy bassline containing shades of Kerri Chandler fused with deep chords and swirling synths that build and coalesce back into a straight-up groove. Maintaining the garage tendencies,
    Maxwell's Need You is all about melody, rhythm and intimacy with skittering percussion laced together with resonating, deep piano stabs and moody bass over an accentuating R&B vocal. There are head-nodding grooves on all tracks, stylized by cut-up vocal flourishes, shuffling hi-hats, groove-heavy basslines and inviting deep house/garage sounds. This mirage of house and garage can be heard on Banjax's Give it to me, a track that pieces tougher bass, dubbed chords and heavy bass-kicks to really compliment the soulful vocal hook. Jackmaster K quickens the tempo slightly utilizing the classic Happy Clapper's house sample anchored over sharp snares and a hacienda-like bassline to create a real Balearic 90's vibe.
    Tracks from JMX and Mikki Funk will capture the imagination of dance-floors all over with their uplifting, house rollers. The former is more garage tinged, fusing a looping vocal sample over sharp, organ stabs that build throughout while the latter embodies tight percussive elements interwoven with piano stabs, a female vocal and deep bass to give a nice contemporary vibe. I
    It's no surprise that Jamie Trench's Juicy has been gaining some serious heat and earning plaudits from the likes of Ross Yallop and Richy Ahmed. This track nods increasingly to earlier influences with a rolling bassline that resonates with melodic similarities to Omar S' Day, albeit in a more exuberant way. Swinging hi-hats and percussive rhythms give it a hip hop-like feel, complete with a punchy vocal that descends into stripped-back dance floor house at its finest. New Jack City pick up from the success of their highly rated debut EP with yet another straight-up banger.
