Processed, enveloping kalimba notes shatter off into the distance in the opening moments of 'reGenaRation' before we're plunged into the depths. Bleeding into the title track, the A-side is all claustrophobic commentary on trickle down economics, overdrafts, killer shark metaphors and empire. Adam & Eve? Rewind and there's Shango, god of thunder and lightning. 5 rewinds later - still going. The B-side continues with equal strength, amazing wordplay and broken, industrial rhythms for a broken United Kingdom.

STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: Alluring dub-poetry smothered in well formed basscapes. It's got that claustrophobic dancehall pulse and is guided by a deeply spiritual voice. A unique and magical release.
