Synaptics EP sees the Berlin duo Mouse On Mars embrace their love of juke, footwork, and chopped-up house music. "Jack Is Out", with its pounding lazer stabs, is an obvious link to their current club sets. It found its final form through an edit by Bon Iver producer Ryan Olson, aka Arson Only. "Bluescreen" was born out of a Berlin session with Jessy Lanza and Junior Boys and was completed some year later with support from Modeselektor. The tropical funk of "Sensitive Person", based on a studio jam with Sepalcure, also needed some refinement after a couple of months.
