Haunted and atmospherically epic, the title track contrasts dystopian synths with a sparse grid of footwork percussion. Stylistically, it sits somewhere between DJ Krush's Mo' Wax-era soundscapes and Kuedo's Severant, yet its more menacing than both. The remix by Exit Records affiliate Fracture doesn't steer far off, with rolling snares and additional bass-weight creating a steppier, more floor-fit alternative. "Like A Warrior" sees Trinidadian MC Juakali laying foreboding spoken words over a Kevin Martin-esque dub-score to resonating effect. Richards' doom-mongering edit of Ghettozoid's "Boy Toys" completes a strong package.
