Recorded in the disparate locations of Brighton (UK) and Innsbruck (Austria), and featuring collaborations with a succession of underground heroes such as Mykah 9 (freestyle fellowship), Graciellita and Bobbie Watson from Comus, the album builds on his trademark sound - lush instrumentation, dusty break-beats and shimmering melodies that veer from ethereal to menacing with surprising deftness.
