Sully: Swandive EP

One of the most anticipated neo-jungle releases of the year, Sully’s new EP is a master class in tightly controlled break smashing. “Werk” walks along a tight rope, a short fuse which threatens to detonate at any moment. “Poison” has more hip-hop/rave swagger and is a bit more of a roller. “Swandive” is way more explosive and skittery, like a roller coaster designed to feel extra turbulent but always keeps right on track, and shot through with emotion. “Memories” is a lot more wistful, and the most melodic track here, with some epic gliding solos which almost sound like cyber-smooth jazz, but more inspired.
