Steven Warwick as Heatsick very nearly crafts the exact opposite album as his musical partner in Birds of Delay did as Helm. Both solo projects are recent releases from the Pan label and “Déviation” sees the label boldly expanding into straight-forward beat-oriented music that feels sunny, bright, and open where past releases have felt dark, claustrophobic, and threatening. Danceable genres such as disco, house, and dub form the backbone of the 12”, but Heatsick ultimately creates a looser, weirder version of those classic styles. MIDI-triggered keyboards, vocal loops, handheld shakers, spliced fragments, and synthesizer pulses pile atop one another to bring a busy, collaged sound to the dancefloor. - Ryan Potts, Experimedia
