The group is now rounded off with the additional ambient guitar parts of Ryan Goan. plus the propulsion drum beats of Jas Sonido and percussion banging’s of Bobby “Dubby” Maltizo Goodleaf minister their music with various heavy influences, such as Ambient, Trip Hop, Post Punk, Vintage Dub from King Tubby to Jah Shaka, their first release Dub Pilipinas album, was their first LP to be released on Inity Records.
