"Conscious" - This caravanning nomadic explorer projects an atmosphere of mystique. Crashing whips and authentic drums accelerate the rhythm nicely as the female vocals slide in. Kasey E Ryan sings so beautifully with words of consciousness, discovery and celebration. Dark epic pads complete the tracks essence. A house DJ's signature set track for sure.

"Slow but Sure" - A spaced out tribal enchantment embracing its form as a work of nature, the DJ can settle people in for a journey for the ages. Flanged female vocals and spatial percussion filters extrude the track extremely well. The breakdowns are incredible with a minimal ritualistic feel.
