Last year Tornado Wallace touched down at the ESP Institute with his Thinking Allowed EP, a slab of wax that proved pivotal in his musical aesthetic, beautifully complimenting our catalogue. He ups the ante further with Circadia, his second 3-track EP that riffs on ESP themes whilst sophisticatedly amplifying their character. The title track lays trance-like arpeggiated vocals over thunderous tropical toms, opening up into an epic group chant. Time of Nectar coasts along, blanketing us with soft pads and soothing pan pipes before Jonny Nash's palm-muted Stratocaster makes its cameo. The essential house jam on the b-side, Soft Light, will no doubt pump its way through dance floors this Summer, don't sleep!
