Girl U (K)No(w) It’s True. Girl Unit is back with a new EP on Night Slugs called Club Rez. At just shy of 30 minutes and six tracks, it’s a substantial release that sees Philip Gamble establish himself as one of the best club producers in the UK at the moment in my opinion as he did when ‘Wut’ first blew up for many. There are numerous highlights here: the funky bass and synth workout of ‘Ensemble’, the mechanical rhythm and 808 cowbells of ‘Cake Boss’, the unique minimal yet aurally rich ‘Double Take’ which takes an unexpected turn towards a euphoric outro and the heightened synth drama of the title track. Club Rez leaves me wanting more.
