I’m at a point in my life where I’m ready to stand and take full
ownership and responsibilities of the band.
I want to thank Mycrotonik for those great 4 years together, for his
friendship, all his great work, all his input, that, mixed with El Lute
and my work gave some great great things.
I wish Mycrotonik all the luck he deserves for his musical projects and
