Anatole ~ Emulsion

One minute into Emulsion, something unexpected happens. After vibraphone, snare drum, and acoustic bass build alongside a lulling piano motif, a breakbeat groove slices through the arrangement.  In its wake: a choppy piano loop and thumping, gridline percussion. Despite its early
