Bring in a brass section and the deal is sealed on Rocco’s latest masterpiece. We don’t stop there though; the release is given the full remix treatment as the Arco. family step into the fray, bringing some jagtime-tinged smooth notes and Brazilian percussive vibes to proceedings. Then we crescendo with a mood that both enervates and uplifts to polish off a complete sonic journey for you lucky listeners to undertake. Enjoy it!
