- Watusi Michael Iwatsu Remix
The first single ‘Watusi’ is the trio’s interpretation of a Sun Ra Arkestra live staple. Featuring rapid tempo changes, free form improvisation and percussion en masse, it’s a perfect introduction to this ensemble whose frequent abstraction of the canon makes them a dynamic and intriguing band to watch live, and hear from the studio.
Also included in the single release is a remix by London-based producer Michael Iwatsu. He takes the raw elements and brings a distinct and metric freshness to the single, completely reimagining 'Watusi' as an industrial and thumping club-ready cut.

- Sun Dream
Second single ‘Sun Dream’ is an original composition influenced by psychedelica and the spiritual jazz of the early 70s. Featuring the trio alongside Harmonium, viola, shruti box and a mass of auxiliary percussion ‘Sun Dream’ is a massive sonic landscape deserving of attention.
