I don’t even know remotely where to start on this EP. Not only was it the VERY first release on OWSLA (the label I have the most respect for in this scene), but it is still to this day one of my favourite EDM releases. Everything about this sound that Porter creates is pure perfection, and when he unleashes tracks like ‘Unison’ and ‘The Seconds’ live, it is possibly one of the most en-captivating moments you’ll ever have at a live show. If you caught Porter’s documentary the other day from his Language mini documentary, then you’ll know that there’s one specific moment in ‘The Seconds’, where Porter is able to manipulate the crowd to his every will, creating a very powerful moment.
Anyway, this EP really blends the perfect balance of aggressive tracks like ‘Spitfire’, ‘100% In The Bitch’, and ‘The State’, with euphoric tracks like ‘Unison’, ‘The Seconds’, and ‘Vandalism’. Not to mention there were some very brilliant remixes from the likes of Mikkas, SKiSM, Downlink, Knife Party and Kill The Noise.
All in all this EP was not just a major milestone in Porter’s career but also one in ours, this EP crashed Beatport when it released before holding a spot at the top of the Beatport charts for weeks on end. If this was only his EP, then how can we even begin to imagine how great his album will be.
