'Acid Jazz' cuts and chops the classic breaks and samples with some frenzied acid action, whilst '(We Have To Live) In The Future' holds a dusty and raw disco house vibe. Elsewhere on the double pack, 'Innervisions' slams down a solid Todd Terry-esque breaksbeat pattern, peppered with all the hallmarks of the classic London garage sound. 'Roots' plunders the WNCL influences, a hybrid track that fuses electro and drum & bass with ease, whilst 'Body Rock' and 'Time Loops' showcases his love of jazz and funk, always cutting and chopping but with a contemporary presentation on the music.
'8 Track Cartridge' EP is available from December 2013 on 2X12" vinyl and digital download.
