Leeds producers Kreature and Sizeup join forces on this release for You Are We

Leeds-based Mancunian producer Kreature teams up with Yorkshire lad Sizeup on this EP  for London's You Are We Records, and the result is as fine a slab of fat, squelchy house music as you'll hear this week.

There are three tracks in total to choose from, in a total of four mixes. Transient Control itself, credited to Kreature on his own, is a tuff, chuggy affair with reverberating "everybody come on" vox and pulsing synths that pan back and forth, while the accompanying Animal Trainer is a more heads-down, tribal-tinged pass that adds some decidedly rave-y stabs. Elsewhere, Transpose, another Kreature solo offering, is in a similar vein to the title track and sports huge throbbing bass and strange cat-like noises, while Sizeup finally gets in on the action on Like A Jam, a stripped-back homage to jackin' Chi-town house of yesteryear.

Truth be told there's not a duff cut here, but for maximum dancefloor damage my money's on Transpose.


Review Score: 9
