We recently featured Huxley in our ‘Electronic Artist of the Week‘ series, duly predicting that 2012 would be a big year for the UK producer, and on evidence of his follow up to the club smash ‘Let It Go‘ we may yet prove to be prophetically correct.

Huxley-Box-Clever

Its fair to say that his second single of 2012 doesnt stray to far from ‘Let It Go’s’ template of a strong melody and vocal underpinned by a grooving bassline and driving drum track, however despite the similarities this is not simply┬áDeep House by numbers but rather an artist establishing his sound.┬áThe stand out track on the EP is without doubt ‘Box Clever’ with its infectious female vocal, 90’s piano riff and bassline coming together to create a slice of House that is going to be simply unavoidable over the coming months. On the flip ‘Atonement’ is perhaps a little generic with its summery main riff filtering over a solid but unremarkable bassline, where as EP closer ‘Out of Mind’ is much stronger with its roots straddling both Bass and House . Overall a solid EP with an outstanding a-side, and for that reason alone we recommend snapping this up on release.

Box Clever – 8/10
Out Of The Box EP – 7/10
