YNKs 2nd EP for Polytone is much more than a continuation of his earlier records on Polytone and Tenderpark. Instead, the young artist wants his new EP to be seen as an autonomous work which draws on a multitude of different materials. This leads to a very fluid texture of samples, synths and drum machines and a very detailed structure at first sight - however, all elements fit into each other very nicely and make way for the bigger picture if you take a step back. The compelling main theme of One-Oh-One on the a-side subtly emerges as a reprise on the b-side of this record that deals with the various forms of happiness. Between these two sits Benedikt Freys remix of One-Oh-one that creates a form of deepness rather unheard in his other productions - a kind of introverted free electronica that defies the boundaries of house and techno. All in all, High On Endorphin, Low On Gasoline is an EP which may be a bit more uncommon for the sound of Polytone. Nonetheless, the label from Frankfurt is very happy to have YNK back for a stunning new record. The artwork of the record comes courtesy of Lithuanian-born artist Kristina Suvorova.
