Steve Sampling’s trip-tastic journey through his magical adventure world of drum patterns, random delay effects, airtight compression and—you guessed it—oodles upon oodles of samples is light, accessible and enjoyable, which isn’t necessarily a good thing, mind you.

But for the most part it remains tacitly elusive, wafting through the air like the cloud of bong smoke it was presumably composed to.
