The "Rebirth EP" is former Detroit Beatdown originator Malik Alston's first vinyl excursion in seven years, and it is nothing short of magical. The biggest treat is A-side "I Am (Vocal Mix)", a sublime chunk of undulating, soft-touch Motor City deep house soul rich in Afro-tinged percussion provided by Craig Huckaby, lilting brass lines laid down by Hardmatter's very own Zapata, amongst stunningly emotion-rich vocals. On the flip, you'll find a fine instrumental version featuring dubbier production and more of Howard Wazeerud-Din II's mesmerizing trumpet solos, as well as Alston's "Rebirth 2 Mix" of deep, dreamy and impeccably soulful shuffler "Love Changes". All in all, a seductive deep house triumph.
