It’s Friday . . . Let’s Dance

I’m still on a bit of a drum n bass tip at the moment, so today for your delectation we have a bit of Mercury Music Prize winning Jungle from Roni Size and Reprazent.

Size and crew won the prestigious music award in 1997 for the rather bloated but none the less deserving New Forms. It is an album that I will admit I don’t think that I have listened to the whole way through since 1997 but I do pull out the vinyl every now and then and play tracks from it. I think that it has dated rather well, I love the mix of programming and use of real instruments including the double bass.

Coming from Bristol, there have always been comparisons of Size and his partner in both music production and label running Krust and Massive Attack. However Reprazent have released even less albums than Massive Attack at two,  granted they were only in existence for 5 years  but still.

Here is a remix by Origin Unknown of one of the highlights of the album. Origin Unknown are themselves responsible for one of the best and most original drum n bass tracks ever, Valley of The Shadows.

Have a good weekend people.

    Are you back, or stuck in an airport somewhere, you dirty gaddabout? I have just poured a glass of pinot, but it is distressingly under-chilled. The things I have to endure.

    under chilled wine just won't do. I had a similar experience on the plane to Heathrow!
