Capsule's Pride is split between slick dance floor cuts and atmospheric pieces. Capsule's Pride (Bikes)" transforms the fragile bell refrain of "Tetsuo" into a storming, trance-y monster, complete with the rousing basslines Micay learned from years of listening to old Global Underground mixes. Failed Escape (Where You Belong)" dips into low-slung trap with the film's unmistakable squealing woodwinds, while "Kiyoko's Vision" is a sad, beatless track that uses Micay's proggy leanings to heart-tugging effect.

Capsule’s Pride definitely achieved a reach I had not anticipated. They work so hard and just have such a clear vision. The same can be said for this new album coming out. Life since then has generally been the same. I just think an album should have cohesion and purpose, particularly in dance music. Doing Capsule’s Pride felt so natural because there was already such a great narrative to work off and explore. Basically the idea was to contribute something back to the culture we took from on Capsule’s Pride.
