Here is yet another multi-artist collaboration involving the production skills of the prolific Ill Harmonics. There's a strong Latino guitar vibe throughout the record that sits well with the jazz funk thing that features strong, check out "Updated & Still Hated" and "Comp USA" if you like it basscentric and slick. As Freddie has contributed to Phonetic Composition it's hardly surprising that this album is stylistically similar in the form of a sharp, pared down sound throughout most of the album. A brill record, Freddie is a name to keep an eye on, an important member of the fast emerging, cutting edge, underground collective.
