Percolate residents Krywald & Farrer are slowly establishing themselves not only as top notch selectors, warming up dancefloors for heavyweights including Floating Points, Jackmaster and Moodyman to name a few, but also for penning their own tunes.

The stand-out track for us is the entrancing ‘Spoon Billed Sandpiper’, though the other two tracks are no less worth checking out – ‘Is That Saeed’ is a jazzy, fidgety number and the soulful deep house of ‘Blue Brother’ closes the EP, the latter ending with a sample that hones in on their world music inclinations from previous EP, ‘The People’s Asafo’. Similarly, worth your time.
