This collective from San Francisco and Berlin released one album in 2004: Twilight.
The album mainly consists of instrumentals (totalling 9) with a kind of reflective and mood altering tones to it. Most of the production was done by DJ WERD who is originally from the SF bay area but has been living in Berlin, Germany for about the last five years. Not long after his arrival there, he became a part of the Phaderheadz DJ crew. The crew originated from DJ Hype, winner of consecutive European ITF DJ Battle Championships in the mid '90s. The crew composed the opening track on the album. Most of the beats are sample based from an MPC 2000 or computer programs, however there is also some live violin and didgeridoo on selected tracks. Along the way, Montags Dust (Squil and Kenji451), a production team from Berlin added a different style element to the production. Sick also made a contribution with one track. As far as the songs, there is a total of five. Thailan, departing from the SF bay area, offered one track adding a feminine twist to the album/ project with her lyrics and vocalizing. There are 4 other songs from Sundiata originally from San José. The musical history includes being a part of Kaotic Souls which grew to a large number eventually leading to the spawning of members falling under the umbrella of the Audiopharmacy label. In general, I would say the topics are of a struggle between an outside world and internal experience and attempting to make some meaning and harmony by seeking a balance in experiencing the extremes. It is a kind of constant departure and arriving to an experience of life.
