"The original Rugged Tranquility handed us the comb with which to style afro-textured sensibility. 'Slapboxin' Wit Ya Momma' has all the bounce of a club-focused beat, with a face-twisting phased guitar / keyline combo that swirls and churns psychedelically atop a crate digger's buffet of two-step drumming. A partner to his first digital beat tape, RT2 further articulates the funky emotion conveyed in that seminal work. 'Bliv raises his knuckles straight away in the ring, starting with the hook shot that is 'Da 1neWay'; Hot and buttery low end with a satin-lined groove, jumping out of the speakers with a kick drum that rattles bone. Beautifully haunting melodies on 'Thinkin of U' take one back to past loves and past mistakes, echoing with the progressive rock sentiment he so often imbues. We at Paxico have taken great care not only to issue Ohbliv's first full-length beat tape onto vinyl, but to accent it's rich audio cornerstones with the all-new cuts of Rugged Tranquility Vol. 2."
