Album Notes
When we started this project we had no music composed and very little time in which to put it all together. Dan had been working with Wesley in Durban stalwart Syd Kitchen’s band Amakool, but Wesley and Luke had never met before, let alone ever played together. In December 2000, Luke was in Durban primarily on holiday when Dan organised the initial session at Sonic Studios more or less as an afterthought.

In many ways, it was a melding of minimal experimentalism with acid funkiness. No loops were utilised and we kept the instrumentation to the bare basics of bass, drums and saxophone so that the music remains lean and clean. Furthermore, we’ve had little time to agonise over any details, which forced us to be as spontaneous as possible.

Even so, some bass overdubs were recorded by Dan to flesh out the sound with guitar-like chords and cross-rhythms. Note that no guitar or keyboards appear on this recording except for the one note keyboard figure of ‘Lagune’ (Track 2). Some saxophone overdubs were also added by Luke to beef up the odd melody line here and there.

Dan was the glue that brought this project together, but it soon became clear that Wesley’s propulsive drumming would have to be showcased. On this recording you will hear Wesley employing techniques associated with everything from Afro-Brazilian music to Funk and Swing, as well as several rhythms influenced by the ‘Drum ‘n Bass’ genre.
