Rock-solid house and techno that tells the story of a recent US tour.
The story is mostly in the titles (which refer to The Loft in New York and meeting Danny Tenaglia), but the music is also loaded with emotion and tension. "Monticello" is heavy, booming techno spiced up with a catchy vocal sample and the pitch-perfect modulation. The bass is wobbly on the thunderous "Gathering NYC," while "Embassy" dives into jungle with a bassline that underlines McBean's UK roots. The shorter beatless tracks include the ambient anxiety of "LDBPT3" and the calm resolution of "[email protected] Loft," a candlelit track that feels like a moment of relaxation at the end of a long journey.
