"For the last few years The Mole has been trying to translate his experience in clubs and parties into a sound that is at once reflective, inspired by all the great music that has moved him (and so many others), and yet personal. Deepness is of the essential for The Mole, taking his cue as much from Moodymann and Wildpitch as from Larry Levan and Ron Hardy. Being a vinyl obsessive, or black crack addict, DJing has completely reshaped this Montreal resident's life. And finally, after taking and learning so much from this worldwide vinyl community, he is finally ready to give a little back. On the A-side you'll find 'Jingover,' a jam The Mole created with real handclaps (hooray for handclaps!) and a whole lot of samples. Both tracks here are similar in form to The Mole's live sets, he sets up a bunch of loops and rides them for a while, spontaneous magic, if you will. 'Steady Down,' the B-side, is one long jam Mole did and it has a trajectory just like its name. The Mole got the name from his Russian piano tuner who when asked how he's doing responds with 'steady down.' An appropriate hand movement accompanies this and he explains it as being a description of life... steady down towards the grave. The Russian thought it was funny. Anyway, the track has absolutely nothing to do with death, it just goes steady down."
