Now that I don't need to tpe an opening thanks to that picture, onto the tracks. Starting off suitably with a bit from Modeselektor's Monkeytown, Busdriver lends himself well to the overall style of the LP, and the shelf wobbling backing tune from the 'selektors never goes amiss.

continuing the AFX hype train, here's a little but you might recognise from the infamous Rubber Johnny video. Taken from the last proper album we had from him (before the announcement of Syro), Drukqs changes atmospheres at breakneck pace, changing from soothing introspecive piano pieces, the the all out beat butchery AFX is known for.

And finally, some FlyLo from the Los Angeles, honestly wish this one had been included on the album proper, the floor rattling beats and the various 8-bit bleeps going on in the background are a pretty perfect summary of LA era FlyLo.
