Although known primarily as hip hop acts, both Damu and Raw P stretched out to expand what the genre is known for.

Captured and recorded in it's rawest form, the album is honest expression. Masterminding the festival of sounds is Damu the Fudgemunk. Voices may be absent from theses recordings, but artisanship is immediately undeniable throughout the almost 40 minute LP. Packed with tons of beats, original compositions, upbeat and signature atmosphere, there's no question who's behind the boards. With the average tempo of over 100bpm, this is one of the most energetic releases in Redefinition's catalog. Raw P and the Fudgemunk aim to revitalize listeners of all types with their original sound. They call it "The Reflecting Sea: Welcome to a New Philosophy."

This album lives up to its stellar rep. I feel like a better person for having listened to it. Will excercise great restraint and try to only listen to it 1x/day. Going on my Best of 2021 list now. Otis Nugatory
