Spend even the slightest amount of time around 18-wheelers and it quickly becomes very clear that truck driving is a full-on sensory assault.

From the clammy feel of a worn steering wheel to the taste of day-old truck stop hot dogs, entering the world of a trucker is like being dropped in the deep-end of a petrol-laced swimming pool.

While we can't quite Smell-O-Vision exhaust aroma to you here at Pacific Standard, we asked acclaimed electronic musicians (and noted CB radio enthusiasts) Quintron and Miss Pussycat to create a soundscape of life on the road as a big rig operator. As the horns beep and the radio blares, close your eyes and it's easy to feel like you're right there in the cab riding shotgun.
