"Mezzo" - The march runs, well equip, safety in numbers commanded by the raw bass lead, which pumps steadily as the drum soldiers
carry out their missions with authority, recruiting more drums as the story unfolds. Round up your soldiers on the dance floor,
they will be drawn to the screaming synths and the perfect symmetry of the track.
"Skeleto" - This one establishes a catchy rough groove from the get go, accompanied by a flanged out
strike that gels the low-low-high drum patterns. Wild sweepy winds elevate the additions which
include steady bass line triplets and dark synth leads. A couple of pops and clicks here and there,
nice drum rolls and peaks round it out. A true floor filler!!!!
"El Baile" - Under the radar flies this secret minimal to action sequence, progressively building towards the
combat zone. Blip, Blip goes the radar and some seriously dramatic leads strike into a
massive peaking build which concludes with an all out assault. Lock and load.
"Spicies" - The Internal Affairs EP ends out its investigation with the discovery of new species. Dexterous
breeds of relentless intelligent insects crawling the planet looking to further evolution and become
the next rulers. A miracle is needed. Drums, FX, and clever shots bring hope in this track. Play this
on every dance floor and watch these humans take the fight to them with this apocalyptic house track.
Charted at #9 on the Balance Record Pool.
