Mat Ronin aka No Mad Ronin debuted on Ibadan in 2012. The original mix of title-cut "Chemical Planet" kicks things off here, a raw, dubbed-out number, built around gritty, shuffling drums, heavily-delayed chord stabs, hypnotic bass tones and tension-building atmospherics. Processed vocals are thrown into the mix as well as subtle nuances in the key elements, creating a blossoming dynamic. Following on is the Quiet Daze remix. Daze, better known as Ian Pooley, offers up a stunningly contrasting mix, opting for a more direct 4/4 feel to the drums, while stuttering synth lines and swirling atmospherics flutter around the foundations. "See the Jungle Within" winds things down with an ethereal vibe.
