Evening folks, welcome to Audio Flare's 'Only Built 4 Tenuous Linx' Vol. 1
The rough aim of this entry (and many more to come) is to start at a point/song and then to embed a few more tracks with the aforementioned 'tenuous links'. As you shall see...right now.
Vol 1. begins with a band I've recently started to listen to and love dearly already.
Song 1: The Herbaliser - Goldrush
A catchy, instrumental mix of electronica and jazz. This song is cooler than a penguin in a dinner jacket sipping on a martini at a card game. Feel it!
From this we move onto the first tenuous link.
Song 2: The Herbaliser ft Root Manuva - Lord, Lord
(I hope you can draw the link twixt the two tracks so far)
Holy Giggs! This track is the Everest of suave as all hell Jazz/rap/electronica. I'd only ever heard of Roots Manuva before in very niche musical circles. I hope if you've never heard of him, you give him your ears for this song. I don't deal in disappointment.
Alright. Finally we move from the gourmet track 2 to the next link.
Song 3: Leftfield ft Roots Manuva - Dusted
Apart from a music video that looks like a piece of propaganda from the 30s crossed with the Wizard of Oz (yeah! Watch it if you don't believe me), this song matches Roots Manuva's (once again) awesome vocals over the top of a fine backing from often overlooked electronic gurus Leftfield.
At the end of track 3, we find ourselves at the location of Leftfield.
Where will we go next?
Tune in and find out next time on Only Built 4 Tenuous Linx!
