Trinity Lo Fi returns to bring you a haunting collaboration alongside Melbourne's DOS4GW, one of many unique producers in the hip hop collective L-Burn Illuminati. Driven by DOS4GW's trademark style of intense drums paired with industrial synth lines, Jody Bigfoot and his carefully selected guests layer this foundation with a sorrowful, brutally honest yet forward thinking and positive lament to the restraints of a big brother society.
The album opens with an ode to the daily consumption of the natural world by civilisation and the constant justification of this act. Claiming we have removed ourselves from our connection to Earth which in turn makes this wanton destruction so much easier to accept as we leave no corner of the planet outside of civilisation's control. Moving to Fear Fire and beginning to slowly introduce some of DOS4GW's heavier synth elements, and the spooky vocals of California's Lavender Fields, Jody speaks of the Fear Fire stoked by the media and politicians that will eventually consume it's creators, ?as they fan the flames in the fear fire, the fire spreads and it burns down the fence wires?.
Next up is a pounding footwork posse cut featuring 4 different MC's vision of what the future is to hold for us, the enigmatic Charlie Banks leads us into this picture speaking of our present stasis leading us in a sleepwalk downwards before we can rise, passing the baton to Jody Bigfoot who claims the future is now, asking must we reach these depths before we can fly?
MC DropDeadFred from the festival phenomenon Backyard Rhythm Orchestra continues this story speaking of phone addiction and the future of micro chips being placed in the heads of our children as a standard package before allowing another fine member of the L-Burn Illuminati - Eppsilon to take the reins and remind us of Aldous Huxley's vision, referencing the Bokanovsky Process of cloning that a trans-humanist agenda could realistically lead us to.
Aptly moving from Aldous Huxley to George Orwell, Jody takes us on a realistic analysis of who and what the thought police really are in this day and age: ourselves. Over a tearing and persistent synth line we are reminded that although 1984 was a fictional novel, the metaphors and ideas within its pages are entirely non-fiction and we live alongside them today, ?there's no need for a thought police force when the citizens police their own thoughts with furore?.
On what could have been a peaceful atmospheric number but with the weight of the drums and the aggression of the lyrical content tactfully cutting through, we are then taken on a journey through the broken circuit boards of our system and urged not to resist the coming glitches as the virus burns it down.
What could be mistaken for Santa's consumerist sleigh bells actually leads us into another megaton synth line as Jody Bigfoot and long-time Trinity Lo Fi collaborators Zico MC and Georgia Porja tear apart the surveillance state with a half Japanese half English chorus and critical verses.
Eppsilon then returns for another feature on ?Umvelt?, an expansion on the semiotic theory of a self centred world of Jakob von Uexkull and Thomas A. Sebeok.
