Daze follows up his seminal 'Lips' white label with a huge three-track EP for the core Lobster Theremin label. Traversing a bastardised series of themes that sees Jersey house blended with overdriven rave, tinker-toy acid lines slicing through shrouded doom techno and chattering hip-hop loops rolling over classic breakbeat house.

Steve Murphy turns in a rough and raw four-tracker featuring the blazing piano cut 'Eyes Behind The Door' knocking knees with deep house/techno banger 'Relax' on the A-side.
The B-side sees Steve operate on two different levels - 'Tram' takes a very Shari Vari-esque drum beat and loads it with a buzzing electro synth-line and shattered hat explosions, while 'Try It' plunges the depths of the soul on a seriously trippy deep house excursion.

White Materials man DJ Richard takes the cut into trippy, technoid house territory while Dance Tunnel impresario and London institution Dan Beaumont cracks out his 909 and serves up a strident pumper.
