In 2008, collaboration with SEKTOR ended because it was moving to Europe. This departure will not dampen our enthusiasm as motivated by our love for music and the conviction to break into our business to make our contribution to the building Galsen hip hop. And it is in this period that recorded with DJ GEBLIK (WAGLEBLE) the song "Bang Gang Slang".
