Cottam is back with his Relapse EP, his second release on AUS. His previous releases have shown off his versatility as an artist - from acid groovers to afrobeat inspired disco - and this release is no different.
Title track 'Relapse' is a beautifully well rounded techno track. At 112bpm, it builds and builds perfectly, with airy pads and horns creating a somewhat psychedelic atmosphere. Cosmin TRG is on remix duties, keeping the moody nature of the original tune but turning up the tempo and giving it that signature pumping beat that TRG's known for.

Cottam's range of inspirations are on full show with the B-side, 'I Remember'. Shuffling drums and euphoric synths lull the listener into a false sense of security, until half way through Cottam sends the tune into a squelching acid wig-out. None of the musicality is lost however, with the synths coming back in, rounding off an excellently executed track, and EP.
