Over the past few years Prime Numbers have run a neat line in melodically aware house and techno that doesn’t announce it’s entrance to the room too loudly, but makes you feel its presence just the same. And although they have released some peak-time gold (Discreet Unit’s “Shake Your Body Down’ and Truss’ “Redbrook” being two personal favorites), label boss, Trus’me, has never been too far away from the release schedule himself, with plenty of soulful, propulsive, and classy house music for the middle of the set. This EP finds Skudge and Marcelus remixing tracks from his album Treat Me Right (reportedly the first in a series of three remix EPs) and sees them keeping the vibe relatively discreet.

Skudge is up first with a mid-paced rework of “Moonlight Kiss.” The track hinges on a cut vocal refrain kept from the original, alongside seriously bouncy kicks and snappy hats. It’s not the most immediately obvious take from the usually steely Swedes: A little on the slick side, sounding like it could have sat comfortably on Midland’s hard drive circa 2010, before he beefed things up somewhat. And while this will undoubtedly get things ticking at early doors, in all honesty it is a relatively unimaginative workout from the duo. Luckily, Marcelus is on hand with a dark and rolling take on “Hindsight” that keeps the understated Prime Numbers vibe, but will please fans of darker techno. Hissing air vent effects, seriously deep kicks, and a ticking hat pattern are the hinges on which this mighty candelabra swings, sending sinister twinkling light over the floor in the process — an exercise in tension.
