C. Thielen El Huervo's particular love for hip-hop is immediately apparent here. The tracks are centered around well-rounded and hefty grooves, each of them feeling perfectly fleshed out. No track here is incidental; each one is intentionally written and displayed here, and this is what makes this little album so incredible and why I continue to return to it. Favorite track: Daisuke.
