Maybe the Swedish House Mafia‘s hiatus was to give Steve Angello time to spread his wings? He’s giving his SIZE Records imprint a new push, and is now re-launching X, Size’s sister imprint, with a new EP from Trent Cantrelle. His Nice & Close EP keeps things fresh, especially on “Understand,” which feels like a total ’90s throwback cut. If X’s drive is to push more of the deep and tech-y side of the SIZE sound, he’s on the right track with this one.
The Nice & Close EP is due out on May 6.
