A master of the drummy groove, Mark Broom opens the EP with "Nothing to Do", a propulsive track that counterpoints its powerful drum track with blissed-out vocals and a solitary horn stab. Ben Sims opens his account on "Circular Motion" with an updated, pacy version of his 2013 limited-release vinyl-only track "Unity", a churning and percussive slam shot through with snaking melodies.

Broom's second cut, "W.W.W.W.W.W.W.Work" throws delinquent rave stabs, and the titular stuttered vocal at yet another of his cascading, tribal rhythm tracks, providing yet another peak time winner. Closing out the "Circular Motions EP" are two versions of "Snapshot 99", a track originally started in the late 90s before languishing on a DAT and being revived and reworked by Sims this year. Centered around a light, looping riff that screams late-night ear-worm while trademark Sims' filtered loops do the groove work alongside a proper bassline, "Snapshot 99" is a burst of energetic, heads down but distinctly fresh air.
