The trio of songs reveal three sides to the duos’ work. The title track, "Marooned," joins Humphrey's modular synth work with Tejada's beats and soothing pads, the result being a slice of beat-driven melodic techno created in a city where such sounds are rarely heard. "Melodiac" continues from there with a lighter mood, with Humphrey's modular melodies and Tejada's signature stabs and rhythms. Rounding out the three is "Concrete Safari," which largely focuses on Humphrey's modular fm synth work that slowly evolves into a cluster of tribal sounds, modular birds and grainy goodness.
Humphrey's knowledge of synths and programming is quite extensive. He currently works with LA based Big City Music, a dealer of modular and boutique synthesizers. It is also a place Tejada frequents to test most of his gear.
