Richard Davis has obviously been taking notes on all of the recent reconciliations of house in the image of clicks and cuts, and thankfully he doesn't regurgitate them. Instead, he rebuilds and reworks the cues into beautifully salient and crisp forays into the trademark understated-but-oh-so-fierce 4/4.
