On his first record since 2013's Lift Me Up EP, Rusko continues to explore a variety of styles and tempos. The bouncy "Like a Boss" sounds like a cartoon rendition of trap, while the strafing arpeggios of "Sunshower" recall the crystal architectures of Rustie and Hudson Mohawke. With the sax-like bleats of "My Style," he hits upon a fusion of Miami bass and "Calabria," and the self-explanatorily titled "Happy Chords" is all about upbeat tone color. Finally, the jazzy "Rusko's Theme" might be mistaken for one of Squarepusher's winking drill'n'bass jams.
