Poor People Must Work
Are we all still here? I'm assuming that during the night Trump didn't get his horrible, stubby, little fingers on the wrong buttons and start a nuclear war and that I'm alive and you're here reading this. Hopefully that's not a stupid assumption. We are living in strange times.
This Detroit remix of Berlin dub techno came out in 2006, Carl Craig reshaping Rhythm And Sound, with righteous vocals from Bobbo Shanti. It's pretty intense and could easily be twice the length and not outstay its welcome. This sleek, ultra rhythmic, layered techno is really pushing my buttons at the moment. Coming over Barton Bridge last night to something similar on the stereo the south Manchester sky was astonishing, a broad pink band bleeding into bright blue with a few streaks of white cloud and the disappearing sun a vibrant orangey-pink ball. A wheeling arc of birds rose over the retail park. I couldn't photograph it (I was driving) and the view only lasted a few seconds but it was something else.
