Actively running the label since 2017, the Russian artist has consistently kept the quality of MondayOff's output incredibly high, perfectly in line with her notorious vinyl-only sets in New York, Berlin, and Moscow. For the eighth release on the label, which has previously released tracks from the likes of Soramimi, Cory James, and Michal Wolski, Mary steps up to the plate, backed with a pair of excellent remixes.

Kicking off the release is "Sleeping B", a deep hypnotic workout, with blooming synths and basslines moving in tandem with the rolling drum patterns. Blazej Malinowski ups the pace expertly, with his remix keeping key elements of the original, applying a broad brush of subtle hyperactivity to the proceedings.

On the flip, "Working B" sees Mary deliver another head down affair, the slowly mutating synths and drums finding their own space with clever use of intricate echoes and sonic permutations throughout. Comparatively, the Patrick Siech remix is an energetic take, it's textures constantly evolving upwards to create a mesmerizing atmosphere that perfectly rounds off this exceptional release.
