The impressive Will & Ink label hits release number four with a new EP from label debutant Yaleesa Hall. This marks an expansion and progression for the label, as it is the first time Will & Ink themselves have not been behind a release, a path they will continue to follow in the future. The three tracks of the EP are straight up club bangers. 'First Leyland' is well swung, dubbed out and raw bit of concrete funk with whip snapping snare lines and moody atmospheres percolating in the background. 'Second Leyland' has a woodpecker like percussive hook running right through the middle of bulky kick drums. Fizzing textures and sandy surfaces add layers of intrigue and help pull you right into he heart of the track before closer 'Third Leyland' toys with broken, stuttering beat patterns, itchy hi hats and rippling dub techno chords. Raw and inventive, stripped back but full of feeling, these are compelling techno tracks that sound like little else out there right now.
