Theo has partly explained the story of this track in his red bull interview: He was 15 years old, living at his grandmother's house, and he 'borrowed' his uncle's keyboard for a few days or so to record some tracks onto cassette, and the last one of these turned out to be Insane Asylum. He says it originally had a rediculous drum part, but it didn't line up with the keyboard right, so all he kept was the kick... The crunchy parts you hear in the track are Theo hitting the busted RCA cable on the back of the casio so that it would partially short out, and he could hit it again to go back to normal. It sort of blew my mind to hear the story of this record, so I reckoned I'd better share it here.

This is definitely the most misunderstood entry in the Sound Signature catalogue. Very minimal, very lo-fi, and very unlike everything else Theo has done. This is one of those records that need to be dropped at a very specific time in a set to be as effective as possible. Unfortunately, most dancefloors on this planet outside of those Theo is playing to reach that point. I really love this record.
