I really don't dig labeling, so it's hard for me to describe what this project is supposed to be for someone else. For me it is exactly as it is. A lazy yet uneasy meander through a dank and dusky, unfamiliar corridor and there's just enough light to see faded, dreary graffiti and ghastly gaping cracks spilling a dark jazz-like material over some gutter, ground zero boom bap.
Recorded in a studio called "Catacombs." How fitting.
