Conceived through a love of Jazz and drums, this EP manipulates the boundaries of both elements to fuse 4 tracks of sonic excitement. The first three tracks are built upon a Jungle/Drum and Bass backbone, each a deviation on the expectations the last track set:

Raw Sun starts with a whirlwind of jungle drums, helped along by sparsely used laid-back Jazz samples to create a paradoxical tune with a unconventional ambience.

The Other Side Of What begins in a similar vein but after a smooth trumpet breakdown, everything is turned upside down; the brass sample becomes more erratic and aggressive, an electric keyboard adds another layer of frenzied sound and the drums are underpinned by a low rumbling bassline.

Legend is mostly defined by it's blizzard of snare drums that are present throughout the track added to with a low rumbling bassline and a trumpet sample that isn't bound by any key or timing.

Raw Sun rounds off the release with a classic east-coast style hip hop beat that features the lyrical intellect of T.R.A.C.
