Amidst the vibrant bass-line tribal drums keep the groove in full swing - livid skanks propelling the arrangement onwards as distorted overtones carry the weight. Dub-wise instrumentation flows in cohesive harmony, a common denominator of this profound release.

In a distinctively activist approach, 'Take Action' dispatches distant string fragments, recoiling in unbridled weight and power. A stripped down armament, designed for the dance and its audience, ruling the sound system with an iron fist. At the zenith of this sonic journey, the finale awaits. Within the sounds of 'Public Madness' - a hypnotic low-frequency meditation unfolds, driven by percussive vigor and spheric atmosphere.
