Would be nice to have same tracks as on 10" only full versions

Is this just 10" mastering on a 12"...?

I have to point out from the start that I have serious love for this record - from the quirky titles and fittingly wonky tracks, to the EP title itself - referring to one of the main thoroughfares in Rotterdam. A bit like calling your record "The North Circular" (hold that thought...). Even the format is off-kilter, 4 tracks squashed onto a 10" running at 45rpm.Right from the get go there's trickery - "Abodigital Dishwasher" begins with a loop that would be at home in a Bogdan Racynski track that then halves tempo, giving way to mournful vocal oo's, a solid swaying 4/4 beat and serious funkativity provided by a call and response b-line. The break doesn't set the world alight but this isn't what this track is about - be prepared to do some serious head nodding..."Laserguided Weapon" breaks things down in the rhythm section and ups the melodic content, plenty of wobble on the leads provides what I tend to refer to as the "Rod Jane and Freddy factor".Flip over and we find "Sampler Track" conjures up the most familiar soundscape, knock a Kyle Hall or Marcellus Pittman track down to -8 and you won't be far away, not to say that this takes anything away from this track. Minimal beginnings set to washes of bitcrunch are augmented later in the piece with suitably deep tones and slices of female vocal. Top this all off with some heavily swung percussive motifs and it becomes a very engaging tune."Sealed with a Kiss" brings the EP to a fitting close with some cheeky re-sampling of "I can't get next to you" and I suspect a bunch of other things though I haven't put my finger on them yet. The result washes over you like "The Wind Cried Mary" but then ends too soon.If I was to level one criticism at this record it would be that only one of the tracks (the first) actually has a proper ending which often leaves this listener feeling as though he has been amputated from the music when it ends. If this were 4 slices of acid techno (for example) this wouldn't really be an issue but these tracks can afford to (and I think deserve to) be more self-indulgent.Maybe a 12" next time so we can have those cuts in full?9/105/5 on discogs
