"Broken Drums" - This deeply submerged head twister comes full with rich sweeping melodies and smooth percussion straight from the motherland. Clave waterfalls trickle in every direction to the depths of the wilderness as the male chants add heavy fire to the mix. Just at the perfect moment a slammin tribal break beat takes over and gives the flow a mystifying experience.

"Shake Your Body" - Festive Afro-Cuban rhythms in immaculate form teamed with a surprising anthem sound gives this cut its platform to make people go nuts. The male vocal, "Everybody, Shake Your Body", antagonizes the crowd to break out and have the time of their life. The track really excels when the matrix patterns slide through and break things up. The sound of the floor has arrived, take a listen for yourself.

"This Is Music" - Raga tribal fusion with classic synth stabs that are far and wide in dynamic. The concoction is made to perfection with the lead bongos popping all over, letting off that shoulder shimmying madness. The raga drum roll completes the rhythm while the Rasta man says.... "This Is Music...You Heeeeeaaarrrrrrrr!" This track is very universal in nature and should appease any crowd. Benny’s Blazin!!!
