Produced by Drezz
Engineered by Sean Williams

Transitions is based around a very odd and skewed rhythm but manages to be really groovy and is a perfect basis for Nicky, Drezz and River to express their own styles in their own ways and finally all together. One of my favorite MSE tracks.

In The Back Bar makes me think of a rainforest themed cocktail lounge in some weird leftfield hotel.

Juxtaposition and Aaahhh were two of the five tracks we recorded in a really productive session in London with Callum on drums, James Burnham on bass, James Morton on sax, along with Nicky, Drezz and myself doing the usual. We recorded a lot of the horn parts all together and ended up with some really nice organic sounding tunes.
