"Certainly the title of Vaz's latest Persistencebit 12" suggests the close of one chapter and the start of another -- the end of the experimental edged Sound Variation series and the start of bringing back the old school feel, which here is closest referred to as house -- Vaz's undeniable first true love. But regardless of one's titular interpretation, these tracks are undeniably three of Vaz's freshest and most rocking ones to date. 'Endings & Beginnings (Your Mix)' kicks off the set with a boisterous, Motown-inflected bass line and swishing hi-hats that rapidly settle into a driving funk groove. Vaz builds tension by recycling a circular melody until it becomes a hypnotic mantra and by dropping out the groove at key moments and then building it back up again even more forcefully. Equally relentless, 'Two in One Solution' casts its propulsive gaze upon Chicago and Detroit house styles, with Vaz again exploiting drop-outs and sweetening the groove with creamy synth streams during the tune's eight-minute bounce. The B-side's entirely devoted to a ten-minute rendering of 'Endings & Beginnings (My Mix)' that's slightly slower and a little looser than the original but equally funky."
