Matlock maestro Ant Plate (he of Rhythm Plate fame) has been turning out edits, reworks and original productions under the alternate YSE Saint Laur'Ant alias for the best part of a decade. His release rate has slowed of late, though, with this Whiskey Disco outing marking his first release for almost a year. The material on offer is very strong, particularly lolloping opener "Just As Bad As You", a head-nodding revision of a Hammond-sporting soul jam that combines samples from an obscure 1970s cut with subtle new instrumentation. Other EP highlights include the gospel/dub disco fusion of bongo-riffic flipside opener "I Know I've Been Changed" and the percussive, jazzy, slow motion bumper "New York Paris", a killer groove marked out by layered congas, ear-catching double bass and fuzzy, post-punk style horns.
