"Channelling equal parts sub-Saharan chants, Trans-Europe Express-era Kraftwerk, a love for nasty snare rolls, and a crossfader/delay pedal matchup that seems to be turning everyone's head for sheer creativity, Cut Chemist drops a pair of beefed-up 'club friendly' versions of tracks featured on his Sound of the Police CD/LP (ASS 004). A-side begins as a near-hypnotic Ethiopian sounding epic story as told by a chorus of female voices, punctuated with optimum intermittent cuts and stabs at an evolving pace, emerging on the other end as some sort of post-cut-and-paste stream of consciousness 'speaks with his hands' composition... engaging and well-executed, perhaps intuitively, embracing the spirit of the African rhythms while adding to them with his 'drums' (aka delay pedal) and turntable. B-side is an Afro-Brazilian piano-driven hybrid that recalls EWF while keeping the Batuque bounce rolling with female vocals again providing the juice. A must have for any fan of Cut Chemist, Jurassic 5 or African and South American-inspired music from around the world."
