To score the soundtrack for a dayglo pop-art video game arcade within Meow Wolf's world-renowned art exhibition, The House of Eternal Return (https://meowwolf.com), David Last went back in time to the unbounded electro-funk music of the fabulous 1980s and 90s.  

Creating a number of aliases to explore different genres from that era, he brought along friends like San Francisco producer Cherushii (who appears on several cuts) and genre-bending beat-smith Sinistarr.  The end result: a psychedelic pack of songs rooted in retro, but bearing fruit far beyond.  Funk, new wave and cheekily earnest synth pop morph unexpectedly into abstract sound-worlds, angular bass movements, dubby prismatic echoes, and surprisingly serious beat workouts.
