    For this EP, South-African born Jason Beukes aka Escapism Refuge lands on London's Smokin' Sessions for the label's 2nd release of 2017. Continuing the label's legacy of atmospheric electronic beats, Beukes has crafted a set of tracks which take influence from producers such as Synkro, Phaeleh and Burial, but which look to the future of this sound through use of updated production techniques and a more expansive sound palette.

    Following on from Red Lights EP, this release will feature a selection of tracks - each a different take on the subtle and mesmerizing 140bpm sound Escapism Refuge is becoming known for.

    Beukes' personal influences - from Radiohead, through Aphex Twin, to De La Soul - are all evident here. On the A1, 'Joker' channels a neo-soul vibe through its use of soft, steelpan-like pads and whirling strings. 'No Signal' on the B1 feels spacey and free, yet with an underlying tension created by the track's constantly changing chord progression.

And after the sucess of 'Red Lights', his stand out track from his last EP (digital only previously), the magical track has now been pressed on this slab of wax.
    There is a bonus track that is digital only entitled 'Perception' that is a 2-setp underground roller with an abundance of bass! All in all a beefy EP!
