Albums are often a difficult concept for house producers to get to grips with; artists like George Fitzgerald would completely change their sound to accommodate the storytelling elements of a long-play record. A successful formula is often showcasing more ambient tracks to begin with, before accommodating songs with a bit more of a kick half way through.

By the time the third track Supreme kicks in, it really is party time. It’s more akin to the four-to-the-floor bangers you’d usually expect from Baltra, albeit slightly lighter and more playful than his usual productions. This is where the album really comes into its own, particularly on the more dystopian sounding Bankrolls. As a follow up to 2017’s No Regrets, he’s come on leaps and bounds.
