The unstoppable Dear Deer Records now welcome Michael Hooker & M.E.E.O. for a new EP that features two originals and comes backed with remixes by Ryan Dupree and Luke Brancaccio & Gai Barone. Opener Octagon is a bubbling deep techno cut with perfectly loose drums. A spiralling synth pattern burrows deep in your brain and will get the floor locked into a real state of hypnosis.

Let Me Believe is darker, with a mysterious sounding baseline making for late night and paranoid vibes, while the step synth patterns roll up and down the scale to bring more intrigue.

Luke Brancaccio & Gai Barone then flip Octagon into a deep, spaced out number with warm drums and dub undercurrents that keep up the energy levels, and last of all Ryan Dupree chops things up into a tech house track with spangled bass and impish spirits that take you down the rabbit hole.

Overall another firing EP from this vital label.
