"What is Right What is Wrong" - Repetition can be quite infectious, as is true with this stagnant groove track. Beefy hard and minimal tribal beats are accompanied by shooting and stabbing synths that are bright, grim, and downright nasty. The old school sample, "What is Right, What is Wrong" flows through the track, gelling it together. Bad ass track for the underground.

"Its Back Again" - Read the title, press play, close your eyes, listen, and begin to see this visualization. A hungry serpent crawling throughout scenes of midnight mist. Realize slick moody bass line, clean dark house rhythms with distorted winded FX that lead the monster to the feast. The breakdown is minimally spread out with sonar synths of spooky origin introduced, riding into the night with a full belly.

"Where Am I" - Out of the gates, the mood of this track is formed with a simple house beat, sharp clap, and a low down delayed bass line which is real thick and dark. Phase 2 is where the clank drums take over as the spacey vocal saying, "Where Am I" waves through. A tweak drum roll is then brought in tumbling on into a cold breakout, with bass fx giving the track juice, then it all kicks right back in together with great tonal imagery as the cherry on top. I timely track to drop late!!!!

"My Last Day (Treatment Mix)" - This track has great hooks, starting with a banging dj friendly house groove that is driven by atmospheric rim and pop sounds. As it breaks down, a man talks about loud music, then out of nowhere come these incredibly dope and intelligent break beats rocking the house. Switch it up a bit with this one.
