“Inside All of Us” sets the tone, wrapping toasty electric piano chords, unusual vocal samples and a live bassline around a fuzzy, stripped-back groove. There’s a looseness and jazzy flexibility about the rhythm and arrangement that’s addictive. It’s house music taken to a whole new place, where jazz-funk, disco and off-kilter rhythms combine to create something wonderfully effervescent. “Leave It To The Doc” flips the script, delivering a constantly changing groove built around choice disco samples, undulating percussion and more oven-hot keys. Propelled forward over nine enjoyable minutes by an incessant bassline and hypnotic rhythms, its’ sparse, dub-influenced production – all drops, builds and breakdowns – gives the track a loose, live feel. San Proper works the groove like an expert, taking us with him on the journey. It’s the kind of track you can get lost in; nine minutes just whirls by. Like its counterpart on the A-side, it offers further proof of San Proper’s deep understanding of dancefloor dynamics. Even when playing around with a handful of live elements, he’s capable of creating cuts that stand out from the crowd.
