Believe it or not, this is Skeptical's debut solo release on Exit, with previous contributions consisting of his monster collaboration with Dub Phizix and Strategy, the mighty ‘Marka’, as well as individual tracks on the Mosaic series 1 and 2. The EP features the percussive roller and title track ‘Imperial’, which has been taking dance floors deep into the jungle over the last few months in typical Skeptical fashion. As usual with his tracks this is not laptop music. Sub bass is essential to appreciate the full production qualities and the whole EP demonstrates his power to achieve the utmost with the very minimum. Skeptical has been building a head of steam and moving into 2015 he is set to come to fruition with more solo releases and collaborations in the pipeline.
