This weekend I’m going to hit you up with another video (perhaps I’ll do this regularly from now on):

The main focus is on the first minute or so- James Blake fans will get tingles. Funnily enough, it was James Blake‘s father who produced Where to Turn, released back in November ’06 before James Blake heavily re-worked it into the minimalist-electronica piece that it is now The Wilhelm Scream. Give the original a listen and see what you think- I must admit progressive rock is not usually my thing, and James Blake did such a magnificent job capturing the mournful emotion behind the lyrics in his version; but I’m a real sucker for talking about samples and the whole father/son thing makes for a neat story.

Of-course, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you simply must check out James Blake‘s The Whilhelm Scream which I coincidently included on this mixtape.

Also, if you think this sort of stuff is cool- I recently wrote an article with some more widely-known samples for Purple Sneakers right here: http://www.purplesneakers.com.au/2012/03/listen-where-does-that-sample-come-from/

Why has it taken me so long to post this amazing track? It earns my FUCK THE RADIO Brillance label.

Halfway between dubstep and chillout ambient music, this builds and releases musical tension with pure artistry. Are real pleasure to sit in the dark and simply listen. My one criticism is that it only lasts 4 minutes when I would gladly listen for 15.

Also a good hangover cure.
