An excellent 3-track offering, Sandman's 'Run It' EP represents the first foray into the world of electronic music for Dutch imprint 'Progressive Intelligence'. Consisting of the original plus a remix from Nasty Fm's Moony and another from Sandman himself ensure that the release is solid and uncomplicated yet distinctive in its conception. 'Run It' has been described as an 'up-tempo grime instrumental with a bashment twist' although there are also elements of 2-step which Moony brings to the fore comprehensively in his remix. Sandman's re-work of the original is far more skippy though with a series of punchy bass kicks evoking memories of the archetypal grime instrumental. All in all, a bold, pleasant surprise of a release that deserves all the praise it receives and is available for purchase via all the usual online spots from December 12th.
