After winning hearts, minds and dancing feet with their eponymous debut album, Letherette return with stand out single 'After Dawn.' This is the song from the album that perhaps represents the full length's charms best. Letherette, more than anyone else in electronic music, know how to leaven their serious intent with a big dose of fun. After Dawn is visceral dance music, but it's also cerebral. Its hypnotic, dancefloor glitch undergoes a startling transformation midway through the song, to stunning emotive effect.

The remix package goes some way to revealing Letherette's standing amongst their music peers. Electronic maverick Jimmy Edgar, fresh from the success of his partnership with Machinedrum in Jets, reworks bonus track 'Restless' with frantic synth stabs, ecstatic texture and trap-edged drums. Berghain residents and ones to watch Barker and Baumecker roll 'After Dawn' out into the deepest dancefloor stormer, re-editing the song's melodic glitch and marrying it to rolling sub bass thunder. Letherette intimate and Warp mainstay, Bibio, cleverly teases out 'After Dawn's' avant-'80s-pop core, before dropping in a melody and bass line that are impossible to resist.

The EP is closed out by bonus track 'Restless,' again making clear this duo's masterful understanding of dance music's vast possibilities.
