Rocksteady Disco closes the sweltering season with the aprop​ os ​Ice Accountant EP by MAN VS INDIAN MAN, sonically chronicling the transition from summer to fall in Detroit. Featuring Detroit artists ​Evan Haywood and Ian Finkelstein​ (the latter of Scott Grooves’ Overdubs keyboard fame) as ​MAN VS INDIA​N MAN, ​Ice Accountant boasts Rocksteady Disco’s most high-profile lineup from its releases to date.

The EP kicks off with LA’s Electro Pharaoh himself, ​Egyptian Lover​, living up to the track’s chilly title, complete with his signature 808 and vocoder stylings. Detroit’s Disco au Courant ​Pontchartrain​ grabs the baton for the next cut with an uplifting remix that will have you wishing summer would never end. It sees him on the keyboard and a special, exclusive synth solo from Finkelstein.

Hailing from Itajubá, Brazil, ​Table Daddy​ kicks off the B-Side with his dirty, bittersweet yet beautiful and melodic Techno interpretation that truly flips and distorts the source material in curious, compelling and unexpected ways; fans of Kyle Hall’s Wild Oats and Jay Daniels’ Watusi High are sure to feel this remix.

MVIM’s original version comes in at Track 4, finally getting the vinyl release it deserves. Here the listener is treated to all of Haywood’s soulful vocals, coupled with Finkelstein’s cryptic synthesizer work. Rounding out the five-track journey is ​ASHOD​’s “Cloud Nine.” A sublimely executed downtempo, slomo production that perfectly incorporates Haywood’s arresting dubbed-out vocals, it’s well-suited as an after-hours closing tune.

Vinyl purchasers will receive a download code for ​Peter Croce​’s extended mix of the original track. Here the Rocksteady Label boss—channeling his inner Tom Moulton—takes the proverbial razor and tape, extending the dramatic original into an airy, DJ-friendly version that is reminiscent of Cut Copy meets STRFKR meets Flight Facilities.
