Brussels-based Lockwood (Gert-Jan Haegeman and Billy Hillaert) open with "Let's Talk," a shuffling, laid-back house groove with an unruffled bassline and blue-tinged jazz chords. The choppy hand-claps and ridiculously over-the-top squidgy bass of "Sway" explore different territory; frenetic synth-funk shimmering with layers of synth and zingy repetitions. "Yearning" melds a tough, rubbery tick with cycling keys and choric pads. It's the bass that's the star here, bending the tune around its abrasive low-end. Nils Penner's remix of "Let's Talk" employs a huge, booming bassline and brings its spoken-word sample to the fore, lending the track a dark, glittering technoid edge.
