It’s an acid house marvel how scene-legend-since-day-one Ron Wells aka Jack Smooth can stay innovative with as few tools as possible. In keeping with the overall tone of PH Scales one and two (also on Further Electronix) our man Smooth toys with the fundamentals on the series’ third instalment. The 808s still thump and the hand is still firmly set on the bass modulator, as opening track ‘Dreamstate’ delivers a heavenly harp-like circular rhythm throughout. With the noted exception of ‘Make Tracks’ — a classic, pummelling acid number — there’s an icy fog layered across this EP, showing that Smooth’s minute changes make all the difference.
