The first and title track of the EP is ‘House your Body’. This is an energetic and slickly produced cut of tech house groove, using minimal tinged metallic percussion, a rolling bass and eerie atmospherics he adds a familiar vocal hook to really give this identity to stand out above the rest.

On the flip side is ‘Lift’ which is a homage to the after parties he experienced in Croatia in 2021. With a minimal deep tech feel, an energetic low slung bass line groove providing the energy, he adds in carefully created chords and pads for depth, this is finished off with an excellent vocal sample to give this the perfect finishing touch to not only the track but to the whole EP as a whole.
