Artist: Cleveland
Title: Tusk / Aku
Format: 12" vinyl + Download
Label: ESP Institute
Calling this an ‘EP’ is a misnomer- it’s two conventional soft instrumental house tracks, both clocking in just under seven minutes, with gentle, slightly broken beats and soft organic percussive sounds running under gentle jazzy keys, sweet plinky noises and skittish little sci-fi sounds. The two tracks have most of their elements in common, with “Aku” having a marginally greater sense of urgency in its groove, but barely so.

Sweet, faintly quirky but a little bit nothing-y, it’s a slick but quite forgettable bit of tempered mid-set mellowness.
