An oddity this one, but it always brings a smile to my face. Taken from 1997’s album, “Let Us Play”, the heavy breathing, the samples, the cool vibe and tongue in cheek textures form a sonic soundscape.
Coldcut themselves are a pioneering sample/dub duo who eventually formed the Ninja Tune label. Using complex digital tech, they also pioneered stage video to accompany performances at festivals like “The Big Chill.” Art and music so often complement each other and these guys have got it down to a T. Pin back your ears and be prepared for a journey; ‘…this is the story of how your life began…’ Love it.
