Side A of the album consists of a track by Reznicek and Kubin, featuring Mariola Brillowska. A piece which moves back and forth, growing from a clicking white noise soundscape into a distorted voice and then into an ever dense rhythm. Like in waves it flows back and then rebuilds again, until finally descending into a long shimmering buzz. The flip side sees Mark Mancha producing two mixes, connecting with side A using percussive fragments and echoey cut ups. The Ensemble Mix opens with bleep sounds and a church ringing, followed by a deep rumble which develops into a pulse.
The next track, Elastic Mix, layers lots of different loops - clicking, whipping, big tones, hollow knocking - adding voices and piano, and holding the suspense before the sounds build up towards the end.
