Bicep return with the second release for their Feel My Bicep imprint. The Irish duo of Andrew Ferguson and Matthew McBriar turn towards a more synth heavy direction than on past releases, but it's all quality material. "Satisfy" is all pads and vocal samples until it meets its breakbeat future. Quite a treat if I don't say so myself. Turn towards the B side for some more jacking material. The darker "Snackbar" packs a heft serving of sinister energy that slowly grinds as it builds. Bicep close the EP out with "The Final Trip." It's a cut slightly rooted in the breakbeats of "Satisfy" but ultimately owing more to the legacy of the 909 and Roland's Juno synths. One to get the kids popping.
