The EP is opened by a collaborative effort between Outbound, Reading based production duo Dyad and their frequent collaborator Lifesines to produce the title track, 'Vivid'. This production is awash with all encompassing snarling mid-range bass tones, futuristic textures and energetic sub-lines combining to form this behemoth of a track capable of causing some serious damage in the dance.
'24', a solo production from the man himself embarks on a dubby journey full of off-beat synth skanks, a walking bassline and deep, spacious delays demonstrating Outbounds appreciation of the genre's rootsy influences.
The third track, 'Fusion' is of a much more industrial, techy nature than it's two predecessors. A powerful, winding sub sequence is the driving force behind this one which when twinned with it's sharp atmospherics and aggressive drum work sounds like something we'd expect to hear on Youngsta's Minimal Mondays show.
The final piece of the EP is by far the most melodic and atmospheric of the bunch. In collaboration with a duo we've featured in the past, Karnage & Mark IV, this collection of talented producers have come up trumps with the interestingly titled 'Ghifasy'. Upbeat drum patterns and warm subs pave the way for these spacious textures, lush melody's and rich pads to really breathe and flow throughout the track closing this outstanding EP in fine style.
