We were rather impressed by "The Premise EP", Kassian's (Joe Danvers and Warren Cummings) Heist Recordings-released debut single. If anything, this follow-up on Phonica White is even better. Title track "Faux Polynesia" is particularly potent. While its musical elements tend towards the ultra-deep - think smoky vocal samples, gentle (synth) trumpet lines and dreamy chords you can get lost in - these are underpinned by a bustling, heavyweight rhythm track that's packed with peak-time energy. In other words, it's hazy and intoxicating, but has enough guts to raise the temperature out on the dancefloor. Elsewhere on the EP, "System" delivers a looser late night blend of swinging, New Jersey-influenced percussion, jammed out chords, alien synth washes and glassy-eyed vocal snippets. It, too, is superb.
