LA's Benedek delivers a killer old school house lp influenced by 78th Street era Beltram, Beat Club, latin freestyle dubs and WBMX drum tracks. This is street beat at it's finest and Benedek executes with precision. Classy and catchy, with a knack for melody yet still grimey as hell and full of beats you can mix. Primetime "86 rush hour show material brought to life in the present tense, carrying on with tradition while flipping it upside down. Highly recommended!

Riddick’s judicious application of the funk. Chasing The Clouds Away Hang Glyde Room With A View Timeless Memories Pushin' Knowing Watching The Skies
