Talented Swedish duo NEAT return to Exploited following their "Street Violence" release. Comprised of three sleek dancefloor weapons, "Tall As The Trees" shows once again that theyre a force to be reckoned with.

NEAT began life as an underground techno and electro party in the duos native Stockholm. Residing in a succession of the citys most interesting venues, they booked the likes of 808 State, Ellen Allien, Modeselektor, Nina Kraviz, DMX Krew and I-F across the years. In 2016, the NEAT project was reborn as a live act, featuring analog synths, drum machines and effects units. You can really hear their dynamic live approach in these freewheeling, slow-burning tracks.

"Tall As The Trees" opens the proceedings with a subtle groove bordering techno and house, incessant muted chord stabs drive the track along as analog bass and bleeps pulse and bleep away. Subtle automation keeps things evolving as indecipherable vocal snippets delay across the stereo field.

Things get spacey on "You Go Boss", as sustained FM synths play a dreamy, jazzy chord progression beneath urgent techno rides and atmospheric layers. The monotone bass pushes everything along in a deep, tribal way while the percussion continually morphs and tripped out FX touches flit around the soundscape.

"Carraldo" goes for a more melodic, progressive approach but is equally as subtle, with simple melodies keeping things dreamy but understated. Warm bass combines beautifully with the main synth hook, with heavenly shimmers and pads sounds creating a stunning, hazy sound that lifts your mind into a deeper state.
