"The Turn" - Hypnotic Tech House entity with that devious swerve sound. A thick kick, deep and rich, lunges forward as the burly bass blips take on a stalking path, confusion sets in. Filtering layers of sound sequenced with confidence. This is a very natural composition with the perfect amount of elements. A true thriller!!!
"Simple Spin" - Simply stand and spin until you fall weightless to the ground and get up on the one track slim fast plan. Extraordinary hard energy comes pouring out of this track with fists of fury. Creepy mid-octave bass stabs and relentless sweeping twisters add to the force of this stormer. Don't let the title fool you!!!
"Green Headlights" - Those looking for some action late at night will appreciate this track, jivin synth stabs shoot you through the streets and as you get closer, the bass line kicks in and your right on its tale. You ride up as the train like sweeps fly through and your there, right in the middle massive head bouncin madness. Climatic adrenaline rushin, goose bumpin house.
"Noisy Tale" - Knob expands its sound to the hard house energy seekers with another high paced big floor track. A truckin, speed racin rhythm, with a head static, block rockin sound. Clever up N down bass lines and a vintage Latin house synth expression really kick this one into overdrive.
"Body Toolkit" - Humpin, Bell ringin, Action Jackson stomp house is the sound. Sexy female vocal seduction, a fat rolling bass line, crisp hi hats, and wild panning screech stabs. This track is steady the whole way through for that big room bump DJ. Burnin down the house.
