Exotic beatmaker Ted Feighan (aka Monster Rally) has long been a favorite here at Hype Machine HQ (he turned in a magnificent set at Hype Hotel earlier this year, too). On this, his third album, he has sought to "translate the images of a half-century of National Geographic into 17 tracks", with samples drawn from destinations as far and wide as Peru, Japan, Detroit, Maui, Ghana and Barcelona.
