feel has been combined with samples and warped into something fresh
and new. Hip Hop beats and jazz drum breaks collide with moody pieces
and interwining emotions, sending the listener to a place he hasn't
been to before. The busy snares, delayed wah-wah guitar riffs and heavy
sub-bass of "Three Fans" kick the release off. After the deep,

with the dubby vibes of "Opa", which features Patrick Goraguer
on drums. Finishing off the release are the beautiful melodies of "Yosek",
featuring Zeke Zima on guitar.
