Easily the highlight of the collection is the bombastic opener “Spiral”. Featuring the fine vocals of Kaeli McArter, SakkieFTW creates an amazing sound that swirls around Kaeli McArter’s surreal lyricism. Rock-edged the title track “Experimental 1.3.2” has a little bit of drum n’bass entering into the mix via the “Amen” break being used quite effectively. Absolutely chaotic in nature is the multi-edged sound of “Frogstep” which at times shows off a hint of reggae’s strong deep bass-led melody. Closing things on a physical note is the gargantuan sound of “In Chains”. Letting the distortion reign supreme SakkieFTW creates an amazing gritty piece of work.
