‘Ice Cream of all flavors, especially chocolate and vanilla…. I’m so glad to be a woman’ goes the sample that kicks off this EP – sounding like it’s off some saccharine 1950s advertisement. Then out of nowhere you get smacked in the chops by a massive, lovely, round, 808 kick drum. Off to a good start! I don’t think I’ve heard anything as upfront as the title track ‘Ice Cream’ from Dresden label Uncanny Valley but I like it very much indeed. The rest of the EP shapes up very nicely too and it’s not all in the same vein. After the opening onslaught we slip into ‘Round n Round’ with it’s lovely liquid drops of deepness, warm pads and hypnotic vocal sample. Next up is the disjointed electronics of ‘East of Nowhere’ and finally ‘Red Wine’, which, although a strong track, sounds nothing like ‘Red Red Wine’ by UB40.

One of my favorite releases on ‘the Valley’ in a while.
