One - Two - Three

I was lead on a real musical journey today, it's been a while since I've had this kinda seven degrees of separation thing come up when I'm looking at tunes so it was a nice return, tunes after the mandatory pic, this time some more lovely typography and design from The Designer's Republic

It all starts when I see an update from Stenchman on my FB newsfeed,saying that he'll be releasing one of his Philestine tunes later that day. I love his stuff under this alias so much, there's not a lot of it out there that isn't on his soundcloud though. Anyway, enjoy this fleshed out version of Genius In A Bottle, much better than that short soundcloud clip I posted a while back!

He also put up a drum & bass tune, which set me off trying to find a drum & bass track I dug but never got the name of. I found it after a little bit of digital digging and vague googling, imagine my surprise when it's a remix of an Everything But The Girl tune, and it's every bit as good as I remember. Tracey Thorn sounds a lot different to how I'm used to hearing her on Massive Attack's Protection, doubly so with those new found breakbeats.

Then the infrequent sax and Thorn's contributions in that track got me back into the jazz 'n bass vibes of the E-Z Roller's Weekend World. Problem is I pretty much covered the entire LP over a few posts but there were still a couple concrete examples of that vibe on there: the bass, sax, flute and the vocals of Kelly Richards coming together to make that distinct sound that I love.
