Steve Bailey's Makaton project is most closely associated with the singular Rodz-Konez label, but over the years, he has also released the project's uncompromising music on Token and Blueprint. Sea, his second outing on James Ruskin's label, starts with the oppressive bass and strings of "Durdle Door", before sliding into the high octane rhythm and dense, metal-plated drums of "High Priestess". Despite shifting so quickly between these contrasting styles, Bailey then moves again to a more stepping techno sound on "Coast to Coast", which has defined his output for Token. The final track, "Through Fire & Water", has found a natural home on Blueprint, as its visceral minimalism is redolent of James Ruskin at his most austere.
