"Aus continue to release the best and brightest of contemporary dance music with the Hug The Scary EP, a collaboration between luminaries Will Saul and Lee Jones. Will Saul is best known as the head of Simple Records, up for nomination as Best British Label in DJ Magazine this year and also sister label to the more experimental Aus imprint on which this EP is released. Opener 'Hug The Scary' is a transcendental journey. Trace echoes of melody encircle an intensifying percussive step, filtering to a chimed key reflection. Tonal themes fade in, compete, distort and then depart, making way for peaks of overwhelming melody, with only the fittest surviving and elevating to the sublime. On the flip side, Partial Arts (the duo of Ewan Pearson and Al Usher) give their own, heavily percussive account of the proceedings. Stormy fuzz and bubble bath accents introduce a funk bassline and interplay between looped guitar and tonal melody. A sci-fi synth haze halts and then dictates the progression into a saturated melodic climax."
