Ninja Tune delivers again. I was a little perplexed by the introduction as to the significant of the tune, but now on listening back to it a couple of time it seems I was simply put off it being drum and bass by the use of a high pass filter cropping the bass drum part of it to a little click. But in any case, it builds and arrives pure and unfiltered so that by a minute in it's rocking full beans.


I guess dance music has got a little more utilitarian these days. I suppose the introduction allows it to be mixed with a less beat driven tune beforehand, or for an MC to talk over it.

I think I first heard this a week ago, but heard it again yesterday, and remembered it well so it's clearly good enough to go here. It's got a kind of early Motown vibe or maybe Stax is a better describer, I'm not sure. But it's proto soul played by a jazz band basically plus strings, with little electronic flourishes in case anyone should mistake it for a historical piece.


The video's more overtly political than the music to me at least. Make of that what you will.
