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.

We still here SA and these are strange times indeed. Therefore it is important that we enjoy what nature presents to us sometimes.

I love the imagery you describe. As for track, two words - train journey!

The sunset was incredibly beautiful up here to as well. Think some force was trying to tell us that the world was still a beautiful place irrespective of the inauguration of a narcissist and all that way bring.

C, check out Fricative White by Somfay for a tune for train journeys

Thanks drew, I just listened to it - yes, that's perfect! - very train journey. (I'm going to have to compile my soundtrack some day then go on a really long ride and film the view from the window)
