Released on their own Equilibrium Lab imprint, the EP, entitled 'Education Required', sees them concoct a bass heavy mix of minimal techno.
The A-side 'Hungry Horses' centres around a muddled vocal - with obvious nods to their narcotic of choice. With clean, glassy percussion at its core, the track buoyantly builds and breaks all the while oozing with great anticipation.
The second track, 'Setting the Torch', seems to nod too much to its roots, with overused percussive sounds recalling the eras of tribal house - though in no way the vain of its heyday. The sometime chord sound that appeases the drop are upheld uniquely, though what follows really don't do them justice.
Obviously not tracks for the headphone listener, but they will certainly go some way in maintaining the party atmosphere on the dance floor. Solid work from the Italians.
