A 7-song EP (well, six songs and a remix) introduce British punters to Gunther Schroeder, Simon Willis and Stephen Rothquel aka MIC who are whipping up a storm in their I native South Africa and on the recorded evidence here will soon be building overseas support. Call them pop dance if you're a stickler for pigeonholing. "Catch Me" has an amusing intro based on, of all things, the words "tra la la" before it cracks an excellent verse/chorus/rap song with a memorable hook "I know you'll catch me when I'm falling." "Dry Land", inspired by a visit to Mozambique has almost a retro Depeche Mode sound while "Round And Round" has a solid house groove with a poppy hook.
