First up on the 'Back to Africa' EP is 'News Z', a disco-tinged, groove-heavy track that again showcases W!LD's clever understanding of samples. Rugged but playful and forceful but understated, it boasts multiple twists and turns - all of which are sure to keep the listener guessing throughout.
'Air Tight' is the second of the originals. The canny chimes and bottleneck percussion draws the listener in immediately, with its sun-kissed charms soon matched by a vintage, Chicago-esque coating. A bulbous bassline eventually takes centre-stage, by which point the track rides the edgy grooves until the very end.
Culminating the package is the title-track, 'Back To Africa', a glorious number that brings the listener on the sort of proverbial trip its name suggests. This is W!LD at his very best too, with its colourful loops, tight melodies and hidden intricacies making it a delicately primed record that's arrived just in time for summer.
The EP also includes remixes by wAFF and Cozzy D & Lee Brinx.
