The Sauce - Track by Track in their own words:
A happy crunk hop tune which keeps the dancefloor upbeat and flirty. True hip hop with a bass melody that winds its way through the song meeting various textures and surprises as it works its way to its conclusion. This track is a great party starter and a big favorite with the ladies. A deliciously crunky song.
A song that shows PANTyRAiD's range. Straight up piano melody together with driving hip hop beat and catchy vocals. This song shows PANTyRAiD's african and southern roots with a catchy melody that hooks you fast. Another upbeat happy song adding flavor and variety to the album.
Worship the Sun
An epic buildup and pure PANTyRAiD song with big bassy drops and broken beats. Starting with the tribal drum and bringing in the 808, this song has humble beginnings and conjures up a hedonistic sun worshipping party atmosphere. A great textural voyage from start to finish.
A elegant and cheeky downtempo song exploring the emotions of bass and sensitive drumming. This emotional rollercoaster shows the softer side of PANTyRAiD.
A big club banger, One Mo is about giving in to the temptation of the night. Starting with a developing bass melody, the song reaches a climax in a orgy of edits and bass wobbles. This song gets the dancefloor moving fast and hard and never gives in. A fan favorite.
An escalating emotional road is Headcase. Starting with a humble whistle, the melody takes hold of the escalation, breaking into a glitch hop verse and reintroducing itself throughout the song. Headcase talks of the way a simple thought can grow large in our minds, creating confusion, panic, and then conclusion. The manic journey through our collective minds through beat, bass and melody.
Classic PANTyRAiD - BeBa is a pretty Hip Hop tune which gets down right nasty. A favorite with the ladies it pulls together the sexy mid tempo beat, classic electronic vocal hook, with a rich and heavy bass, together making a unique dancefloor experience. This song always gets the crowds attention and has become an instant club hit.
Enter the Machine
Big landscape song. Huge buildup with talking bassline, this song creates a wide open textural world, then immerses the listener into a bass speech, and then has a huge break drop into a full frequency crescendo, and then slowly unwinding back into an angelic dream world. This song is about the dawn of electronic music, and how the machine is taking over and entering mainstream music. The power of digital music is the theme of this song and it leaves the listener contemplating what more a song could have musically.
Too Fine To Do Time
A cheeky hip hop song for the bad girls. Gritty bass, pretty melody and driving hip hop beat keep the girls bouncing and moving through this tale of a naughty girl that has made some bad choices, but has no regrets.
A pure PANTyRAiD classic, an epic song developing emotion and intention at 65 bpm. Crossing every genre, Like That is a musical masterpiece playing rich saw bassline with pretty harmonic melody and effect. This is a huge favorite of rock music lovers and illustrates the power of bass and the how emotion and feeling can come from a well crafted bass melody.
Our Second Chance
A song for the earth at this sensitive time. A song of hope with a heavy bass metronome keeping the song moving through various melodic verses. Digital and acoustic instruments texture the voyage of hope and the relentless spirit of humanity. Just another illustration of the range of PANTyRAiD, this song often leaves listeners asking, how did they do that?
