    On the one hand it's a shame Evolution EPs have come to an end, on the other hand fucking sick EP. Deffo getting vinyl, every tune on this is a total banger!

    The Prototypes contributions to the Evo EP's are always huge, shame their singles are so shit.

    Icicle tune is so big, the other two are dull, especially the Technimatic one, never rated them.

    Oh my. Understand takes me back all the way to Croatia. Ridiculous tune, heard it so many times and wanted to know what it was!

    Timer is pretty ridiculous as well. Might well be bagging this.

    Technimatic tune is great! Dull? lol! Timer is not the biggest Icicle tune tho... Standard bouncer from him. Nothing special.
    Understand is nothing compared to Slander or Feelings (after drop). Never rated Prototypes and probably will never.

    Technimatic are musical genius's! Im pretty sure every technicolour and komatic tune has been liquid bliss. the stuff there releasing as technimatic is as good too. Obviously your entitled to your opinion but I personally cant get enough of them

    Worst EP of the lot IMO

    The Tecnimatic tune is really good, heard better Icicle tunes than Timer tbh

    The Optiv & BTK and Prototypes tunes just dont do it for me at all. The first Evo EP is still untouchable

    My favourite Evo EP is the second one tbh...and the only one I don't own on vinyl, need to fix that asap.

    Without a doubt first Evolution EP killed it...wasn't a massive fan of the 2nd or 3rd

    Something about that Optiv & BTK tune. I feel like I shouldn't like it, its not my normal cuppa tea. Its just gnarly as fuck though, reckon it may have gone down better without that vocal over the top of it.

    Wow hate to say it but I think I'm feeling the scrototypes track the most out of all of these.

    blackout sounds very subterrestrial-y

    feeling solace really, nice smooth track, ep isnt anything special tho imo, probably the first one that isnt an instabag

    yeh man im feeling the track just the vocals not really fitting.

    Here's my thoughts:

    Optiv & BTK Pretty Big, not sure on vocals
    Prototypes Blackout track proper rinsin vibes
    Icicle - Sickest on here in my oppinion
    Technimatic - Deeep good roller
