Ten tracks are included in VCPs debut album, most of which are instrumental tunes including two singles: Sexual Beats & Two Sins.

Album starts with the bands intro tune, with which guys have started most of their shows, while they are getting up on the stage, so it has become a tradition. In this tune VCP is featuring MC Madman & Kaspar Ansons on noise & samples.

At the time the album was being recorded guys, in live shows, were often giging with two drummers at the same time, so the band wanted to include that particular sound in the album too. To record “Pickin’ Green” & “F.U.N. they set up two drum sets in the studio and grab the tunes.

In the debut album there is also “Pa Vidu” were VCP features MCs Ozols & Natre. Meanwhile guys were performing live shows together with hip-hop artists, as its proof that tune has therefore being included too. Continuing with their collaboration with MC Ozols you can also find “Paul Walker” a song for which rock singer Ervīs Ramiņš and Kapars Ansons with effects & samples are joining the gang.

There is also one tune recorded live: “Cissy Strut”, which is the only non-original in the album & its as sign of respect to funk legend Meters. In this composition you can hear two VCP drummers playing together as well.
