Comment: this set of 10 tracks is the only work by David Grogan aka Skism who at once had lost all of his tracks while his PC crashed. Fortunately some of them could have been rescued from the digital pit. This must have been an extremely pitiful incident because the aesthetics unfolding in front of our ears is something truly consistent and bewildering. While listening to it for first times you get information about the album of being very technical and at times massive and even provocative or nihilistic by its nature (jungle-y Shell (Swift Mix)). The more you get immersed in that the more layers will be opened up around you. For me, the issue is a good example or fact to prove the hypothesis that glitch-hop was remarkably influenced by IDM (intelligent dance music) being very prominent throughout the 90s and in the first half of the 00s. Indeed, it is an exuberant lab where David Grogan creates something ahead of its time because in 2005 there was not glitch-hop presented in the underground scene (I guess he was one of the first mavericks within it). There are also up a couple of visions of (nu) jazz music by him, one of them, Stodj is a favourite track on the outing due to cinematic progressions and a lush, sunshiny panorama revolving around the merry axis of rhythms. In truth, the issue does not involve any weak tracks at all. In a word, the album must be considered a classic one and David Grogan is genius. The issue is a part of the discography of 12rec. .
