“Extended precision-tooled killers on this latest EP from specialist label Assemble Music, which reunites Daze Maxim with his long-time friend and collaborator Patrick Specke. The two put their considerable DJ experience to the proof on two serious heads-down weapons aimed squarely at the floor: ‘Battery’ rides a threatening bassline and loose, propulsive percussion through a series of phased synth lines that envelop and disorientate, while the Portside Waves-esque bass swells on ’Drag Me’ massage the eardrums and direct the feet. Completing the EP in complementary fashion is ‘Chromosome’, which brings some more skip to proceedings, its shuffling percussion, pitchbent bassline and melodic accents all interlocking to form an irresistible groove.
Primed and ready for action and only on vinyl – get it while it’s hot.”
