Prior to departing for a month long stay away from Brooklyn I was evicted from an illegal basement apartment sublet. mainly due to the greed of both the anarchist women i was renting from and a half dead cafe owning landlord.
I find it curious to see the real inner workings of so called political and socially active people. when the bottom line seems to be the same force that pushes and leads to such situations like market crashes, homelessness and unconscious power moves; however large or small.
The resulting track is from room recordings I made in this space, where the landlord operated (what is a stretch to call) a cafe in the floor above, processed in ppooll and mixed in audacity.
