One-sided release. Recorded at The Loft, Chicago.
"Nigerian master musician Tony Allen and jazz legend Ed Blackwell initially inspired this piece. I wrote my impressions of some of their drum grooves in the form of complex vamps performed on drum kit. The formal structure is a stretched duplication of one of these phrases. Each voice of that vamp was then replaced with another vamp. The sounds of the original phrases were then enhanced by synthetic sounds. This wasn't done to disguise the piece's origins but to show their lasting relevance in a fresh context".
