Leonidas and Hobbes are old studio buddies. The duo's first collaborative release landed back in 2013 and they've been putting out occasional joint missives ever since. The Rags Of Time EP may well be their best 12" yet, though. Check, for example, the jaunty analogue nu-disco shuffle of opener "Web of Intrigue", where lo-fi synthesizer melody lines, Mexican horn samples and decidedly Balearic guitar solos wrap themselves around a gently bouncing groove. Or, for that matter, the "Acid Rain" mix of "Heavy Weather", a cheery triple-time workout built around clicking drum machine hits, thrillingly dusty synth stabs and tipsy electronics. The slightly jauntier and dreamier "Dawn Mix" of the same track is also rather tasty.
