"Footsteps in the Dark" by the Isley Brothers, a group that at one time included Jimi Hendrix and is now known as a sampling source for many hip-hop and R&B artists due to the appeal of their music, is performed with an electric nylon guitar reminiscent of Earl Klugh and Tommy Guerrero. The cover is a mellow interplay of electric nylon guitar, Roland's vintage DR-55 rhythm box, congas, and other percussion. The soft tone and cheerful improvisational nature of the guitar track gives a warm impression, reminiscent of the smooth jazz, fusion, and obscure rare grooves of the past.
An original TTGS-style rockin' instrumental with kitschy exoticism and retro Latin, garage, and 60s flavors guitar tone. The beat is an amplified version of a gamelan, a traditional Indonesian music ensemble, with impressive loops and Acetone rhythm ace the 60s rhythm boxes.
