"Iberian records comes out of a hibernation period with a series of Tax Haven EPs. This first EP comes from a group of producers located in the Barcelona bass enclave and who have been some of the main players in the monthly B.LOW events there. Dedicated to what the label describes as bass'n'groove, this EP contains three varied and original sounding tunes with different Bpms suited to the leftfield of various bass music fields (dubstep/funky/future garage etc). First up sees Mr. Gasparov's 'Transient Love' come in the guise of a house influenced little gem of a tune featuring Japanese vocalist G.Rina (who has previously worked with RSD and Nicolette) who coos and whispers about transient lovers. Next up sees Nehuen's 'Between Love and Hate,' which is a tense stripped down bass'n'beat workout with a persistent bass riff and schizoid strings bringing the darkness. Nehuen is an artist that usually getting support from Dusk + Blackdowns Rinse radio show. There is a grimy and ruff feel here not to dissimilar to some Soulja releases from back in the day. Tuff steppas gear. On the 45rpm flip side Relocate come with their trademark relentlessness sub bass boogie on 'Soul Survivor.'"
