Mauritian producer Jason Rault makes his Innocent Deep debut

Innocent Deep has long been one of my favourite labels when it comes to deep, dubby house and techno, and this latest three-tracker, from Florida-based Mauritian producer Jason Rault, doesn't disappoint in the slightest.

Limbic Resonance itself is up first, a post-club kinda groove comprised of warm, muted 4/4s, a seriously dubby bassline, endlessly warping pads and the kind of sampled, spoken psychobabble vocal that's so popular with producers of this kind of tackle. Wash N Dry, which follows, is several BPMs more upbeat, with twitchy, toppy drums, a throbbing b-line and wonky, Chandler-esque keys, while finally Capture sits somewhere between the two, both stylistically and tempo-wise, and is aimed fair and square at those weary, locked-on 5am moments.

The EP as a whole is perhaps more one for the horizontally/herbally inclined than for Smarties-crazed 18-year-olds on a Saturday night binge. But since when was that a problem?
