JPOD always maintans a solid foundation of big beats, crunchy bass and an overall crisp sound. This release has JPOD experimenting with faster tempos, bringing his flavor into the realm of midtempo with two versions of Vibes Alive. Shamik joins up in this release to provide uplifting lyrical content inspired by the desire for inner growth and forward progress. On the remix it's All Good Funk Alliance with yet another funky abstraction. Lastly JPOD pushes the tempo even further, approaching breakbeat tempo with Switchback. Graceful melodies set the stage only to have gnarly bass and epic chords take over.
