"Ethnic Slur" - A space walking freak of nature's in search of its prey, stampeding awkwardly to the bass line with its head on a swivel. The anticipation of action to come is cleverly orchestrated on the breakdown where the slow motion effect takes place, slowly building to a climatic aggression powered by dark and wicked synth streams and distant pipe drums. Dope minimal house!!!
"Work Da Goose" - Mechanical chain gang of tribal fused tech house that intrigues the imagination, especially due to its authentic marching wide kick thumps, where the beautiful confusion begins. The swampy whistle toots as bass organs sweep through and flames are everywhere. As the brain registers suspense, suspects accent where they can, connecting themselves at the seems and the equilibrium of elements is reached static free.
"Turkey Calls" - With an intro that wanders towards unknown sectors, the kick then takes charge with its low pitched stomp bringing crazy drama. A mission has been launched! 4/4 bass leads that fences with offshoot hi hats can really move some feet out on that dance floor. The stabs come from the abyss to form a dark progressive sounds cape that is pure mystique!
"Turkey Calls (Turk Is Shakin Mix)" - Steady broken house kick shaking out the kinks and a rip and scream synth arraignment, double kick shuffle, and bassy slides all work together to build a plot for any thinking DJ's set. Very spatial and intelligent, DJ's of many diversities will love this one.
