AllMusic Review by

With this 2015 EP, Dillon Francis puts a leash on his prankster persona and focuses on his producer side with fantastic and chilled results. So chilled that highlight "What's Your Name" with Calvin Harris is almost what one would called "refined," swaying in a sea of beautiful synths and giving the Skrillex, Diplo, and Bieber release "Where Are U Now" some wistful competition. "Bruk Bruk (I Need Your Lovin')" is moombahton slowly slinking up next to trap music, and speaking of Skrillex, the superstar producer assists with the dancehall goodie "Bun Up the Dance," which, oddly enough, could be passed off as a track from Diplo's project Major Lazer. The silly bits come back for the closing "Lies," a short and vocoder-drenched interlude where guests Chromeo do a good job aping '70s funksters Zapp.
