Tone Dropout have become known for their throwback rave/warehouse sound this compilation continues in the exact same fashion. Dawl kicks things off with "Caught With A Spray Can", a classic hardcore-break coupled with an acidic synth, grumbling bassline and a cartoon like melody that could just as easily be found in a 16 bit video game from the 1990's. "SUBCOM", the second track on this compilation, is less energetic than it's A-side counterpart. It consistently chugs along with a solid kick drum and acid bassline whilst being thrown into ambiguity with various samples like spaceship noises, vaguely recognisable vocal sounds and even bird noises. Just as you sart to think this EP will be a little more fruity "Phantasies" throws you right back into a relentless rave. Corporeal Face uses a deep hoover bass, layered with break drums, haunting pads and even a chanting sample that resembles the noise of a monkey. The EP is rounded off on a lighter note with "Peaks Transparent" by World Of Batter, a deep house track that's understated in almost every aspect; rarely changing it's arrangement, kept engaging by it's use of effects.
