Koreless returns with his first proper offering of 2013, an EP on Young Turks. Less club-focussed than last year's 12" on Jacques Greene's Vase, the Glaswegian seems determined here to prove there's more to him than nicing up the dance.

There are certainly some good moments: opener 'Ivana' affects a nice Vangelis synth-glide but is compromised a little by its glottal, percussive vocal edits, which persist on into 'Sun', another trancey, string-led number which, despite a dressing of sub-footwork drum patter, is effectively beatless. On the EP goes, laying the stargazing synths on thick, never quite going far enough into abstraction to satisfy on a deeper, more introspective level. Given how inundated we are with highly accomplished,and sometimes stunning neo-kosmische records every week, it's a crowded area in which to operate, and a hard one from which to stand out.
