[SURGICAL 007] The Surgery - Labyrinth (Released today)
Labyrinth, a dark drum and bass audio onslaught centred around the theme of youths escaping from their parent's houses to attend a rave in a disused underground network of tunnels, based around a sample from 1938 Orson Welles record "The Shadow - The Creeper" and twisted into the concept of the police searching for the AWOL ravers in a futile attempt to shut down the illegal shenanigan, using evidence found in the form of an engineering map detailing the location of the urban labyrinth. The front cover was a project in itself as Jon built a spaceship tunnel for the artwork to summarise the content of all tracks on the release.
The release features 3 tracks, A. Labyrinth. AA. The Others AAA. The Others (Instrumental)
The b-side "The Others" debuts our new vocalist and mc named "Reptile", who took the mic to voice his vision of lamborgini spaceships, cyborg soldiers and just generally not sounding like all the mainstream bollocks.
