First Hour EP features some of the best "first-hour-of-your-set" tracks around. Perfect for building the groove and setting the scene. This value packed single 12" features four tracks.Canadian duo Benz & MD open things up with "Exhale". It's a melodic prog rumbler with that certain Benz & MD professional sheen that we have all become used to. Melodic appegiated lines and expansively-wide basslines carry the whole track along, while the moody chord changes add the tension. Next up is "4th Largest Part" from newcomer Static Flux a/k/a Reagan Denius. When we 1st heard this we thought it was a mix of Stage One from Space Manoeuvres ;-) However in the end we signed it any way. Slow and building space prog. Dutchman Eelke Kleijn delivers us "Enchanted" as the next track. Solid robotic prog beats underpin chunky basslines. This track featured heavily on Armin Van Buurens weekly radio show ASOT. Real Quality. Australian Dave Burles (a/k/a Serp) rounds off the package Fresh from his hit with Jose Amnesia here we hear Serp milder side. The CD Single features a bonus track from Serp.
