The haunting 'Metro Alpin' sees the Bug working on devilishly reduced levels to stunning effect. Evolving from a solid analog base, freaking, tweaking acid lines and smooth phasing chords lock the groove in a constant upward spiral of pure gold. We would expect nothing less from this master of funk and reduction.
'Outside Inn' pushes with raw studio punch and a real moody funk that always seems to be Steve Bug's true vocation. Tense, rising synth themes cross and combine in a majestic dance that instills in the listener the very essence of Steve Bug's infatuation with the late night, the freaky and the infectiously funky!
Bonus ,Icean Firea tie up the session with some beautifully arranged percussion grooves toying with the space / time envelope as Steve strings out a masterfully executed DJ tool that meanders along with a melancholic synth theme at its heart.
