Transmit Sessions contributor Clueless is one of Norway’s finest future garage exports – After a brief hiatus he dropped the excellent Griswald House EP bringing fresh energy and a warm summer club vibe. This, his newest release, will be his debut for Brighton imprint B-Dem Records who also recently dropped newcomer Mr. Beeb‘s first release; the ‘Ambivalence EP’, reviewed here.
The Triplet style that has become Clueless‘ signature is well represented in the funky opener ‘On The Street’, bringing mellow chords that are nicely offset by a punchy bass line and a street soul hook. ‘Give U The World’ ups the pace with speedy claps and splashes of vocal underpinned by its subtle drifting pads. ‘Sync Situation’ is arguably the EP’s showpiece with some amazing drum work, it’s emotive strings perfectly combined with the dazzling vocal and popping garage synths. If you like progressive 2step, we strongly recommend that you check out this EP when it drops on the 21st of September.
