Hailing from California, Subtle Mind have been making not so subtle waves in the US bass scene for quite some time. "Ambitions" featuring Ill Chill opens the EP; lounge vibes greet the listener before sinking into a bathe of bliss and bass. Subtle Mind puts the classic 808 drum kit through its paces in "Gelato". Mellow pads disguise the heaviness at first, but once the ground shaking bass-line hits, there is no doubt that this one is a tactical weapon. "Standard Strain" featuring Saule is carried by airy bells and soulful vocal hits, bringing a jazzy twist to the table.
