A: ESP was a more organic soul influenced album recorded high in the mountains Topanga Canyon. All our earlier albums were recorded in Manhattan and have the harder edge of the NYC Canyons 8th Ave and a more Big City Beat. We tried to veer the System Overload ship more in that direction. Quite a lot of new software and technology was used. For a detailed list you can check our CD liner notes.
