“Empty Space” is best described as a track that directly catches ears with its staccato bass rhythm and cryptic, distorted accents. The rumbling bass line, accentuated high hits and quick, clapping patterns propel your mind through a mesmerizing odyssey. “Fourth Dimension” begins with a sequence of faint ‘blips’ and ‘bleeps’ that transforms rather sinister when the bassline kicks in at exactly one minute. “Shadows” captivates listeners unexpectedly, beginning with crisp high-hits and endless sizzling effects. There’s an electrifying vibration that echoes throughout the track, creating an eccentric mood. Lastly, “Visual Scope” starts off with an unbroken beat alongside scratches that create an energetic atmosphere. Around the the 3:00 mark, the track takes on a whole new sound as listeners are hit with a craze of electronic ‘bleeps’ and ‘bloops’.
