Dale Howard is rapidly ascending the ranks of the underground, deftly making the transition from ‘rising star’ to ‘one of house music’s hottest properties’. A cursory glance at his hectic release schedule serves as a testament to this, with recent output alongside the likes of Noir, Get Physical and Gruuv to name a few.

The ‘Rhymes365’ EP is a no-nonsense volley of house jackers with undeniable dancefloor appeal. The title track lures the listener in with warm shimmering chords, which give way to a bassline of tectonic proportions and addictive New Jersey-esque organ stabs.

‘Hot Mess’ continues this winning formula, with a tight garage shuffle and chopped snatches of diva vox, dropping into a thunderous groove, which hits right between the eyes. ‘Dig It’ is centered around an alluring male vocal sample slathered in reverb and delay, to create a hypnotic juxtaposition to the raw chunky drums which sit underneath.
