It is not too strange to see the indie disco-punk bands Out Hud and !!! teamed up on an EP, considering the fact that they share many members. That the EP is made up of songs weaker than anything either band has previously released is also not really a surprise. Out Hud contribute three mixes of "JGNE," the first a rather straightforward disco punk cabinet-shaker with a naggingly insistent melody. "JGNDG" is basically the same only with a fuzzier, more distorted bass and rhythm track. "JGNXTC" pushes the melody to the side, turning the beat into an abstract drone that goes nowhere for five and a half minutes. !!! turn in "Instinct," a 12-minute disco stomper with a steady beat, urgent vocals, and parping horn section. Recorded in 1998, it displays a harder edge that the band's more recent material and while it is not essential, it makes for a good listen and would fit well on a mixtape of modern disco-punk.
