This record is the first of two friendly confrontations with other labels, both released in 1999.

Shi-Ra-Nui is a Japanese breaks`n`beats label. Breaks`n`beats is a foundation, a source, a current, a move, a body, a flow and mainly a source of inspiration for many different innovative musicians and DJ's covering different genres in the process of creating their own distinctive hybrids. It relates from all grooves from techno to downtempo to d`n`b to hip hop. Sub Rosa crew: DJ Wally, Bisk, Tone Rec, Sasha Frere-Jones, and Multiphonic Ensemble attack the Japanese underground: DJ Hati Monji, Jigen, Cappablack, Ruf Neck Piano and Broken Bells.
