East End Dubs' Eastenderz label has a thing for brightly coloured "splatter" vinyl. This split artist 12" is the imprint's third consecutive foray into the world of patterned wax, and looks set to be as popular as previous outings. Romanian producer Lizz handles the A-side, wrapping sustained note chords and jaunty electronics around a tactile, acid-influenced synth bassline and crunchy tech-house beats. On the flip, fellow label regular DoubtingThomas returns with the quietly impressive "Just Saying". A little more introspective than the A-side, the track features the winning combination of hypnotic, locked-in tech-house beats, woozy, Orbital-style chords and a bassline so rich and sugary that you might feel pangs of toothache.
