Machine funk with a top line like steel drums on acid and a hook like a punch in the face with a velvet glove. "Sonically I'm reminded of old home videos, a lower quality presentation of a memory. 'Decay' has that quality to it that reminds of a time gone but stills feels familiar and comforting... 'Rival' was the first experiment of my first alias, Rival. It was recorded with a Volca drum machine the first day I got it, no effects and no edits, as is the basis of the alias, unedited analog sessions. One take." -D'Marc Cantu.
