The inimitable Jus-Ed hooks up with Maltese-born multi-instrumentalist and frequent collaborator Melchior Sultana for their second Beyond Perceptions project on Ed's UQ imprint. The results are predictably classy. 'Luqa Jazz' warms the soul, jazz and house done right, with room to breathe. 'Malta Cipher' is a firmer proposition, with off-beat stabs blending with warm pads. 'Bridgeport Lindy' is a breezy garage-tinged groove, while 'Tension & Release' turns a couple of chords into a brooding tech vibe.
