This Zion I Kings produced track is a unique, heavy dub reggae banger. Laced with trippy synths, psychedelic vocal pieces screwed and pitched throughout the track and a heavy weight drum and bass groove that locks into your subconscious. The composition was originally tracked with live drums, bass, guitars and organ all through an SSL console at Dungeon Recording Studio in Miami FL.
