Charles Trees: 2019 12″ EP

Charles Trees’ newest EP arrives on Shigeto’s Portage Garage Sounds, and it’s another scorching set of forward-thinking dance tracks fit for multiple occasions. “Got No” is a fast, hypercharged boogie track with a sophisticated bassline and choppy vocals, filled with minute details. “Think First” has a more direct, booming kick drum with jazzy snares/cymbals, and it builds suspense and just gets deeper and deeper. “In Arms” cruises along with dubby chords and swift, electro-ish beats, and has a bit of an off-the-ground feeling. “Acja (Club Mix)” is a steady acid-ish house cut with saxophone playing by Marcus Elliot which starts out subtle and harmonic before calmly blooming later on. Elliot doesn’t hog the spotlight, though, his playing gently rides the rhythm and adds to the track’s sunny atmosphere.
