Cat no. MC001
24Hours - Was a floor filler on dub plate. Solid bass and percussion led groover with warm keys, funky guitar loops and gravel voiced spoken word sample.... 'do you understand?'.
Spaghetti Sunrise - Phat and rolling psychedelic slow burner with a floating hammond and twisted sax-like sting in the tail.
Apres Storm - Majestic minimal blues for a walk after the rain.

Cat no. MC002
Following their well recieved debut '24 hours' EP, motherboardconnection return with two more cuts of percussive, funky, late-nite house music for the headz and the feetz.
Conga-lo - A percussion led instrumental journey thru an afterhours landscape of shimmering keys and distant guitar lines.
Mojo-go - Driving low slung bass line and off-kilter organ stabs return us to a place "...somewhere along the Nottingham/san Francisco axis". (James Kendall, DJ Mag)

Munawwa - Arabic for different, diverse, various, miscellaneous...
Cat no. MCD 003
