If you're not hooked ten seconds into The Infiltrator's debut CD, please check your pulse. You might be dead. Titled "You Should've Killed Me When You Had the Chance", it quickly establishes a series of groove-heavy hip-hop beats that are entirely infectious but never lapse into maudlin pop hooks
The Infiltrator's opening track, "Sleeping Sword", utilizes sampled kung-fu fighting effects and vintage film dialogue to establish a tight, confounding beat worthy of a James Brown bridge. The song immediately places the Infiltrator alongside the bands paying homage to the cinematic music of the seventies (See The Propellerheads or Portishead, etc.) but it also digs into the jazz catalogue while bringing a more forward-looking, futurist sensibility to bear.
