I'm fucking fed up with BIG music. BIG music can take a back seat for a while over here. Fidget has become the new 'blog-house' while 'Blog House' has simply fallen off and become a joke. Most modern dance music nowadays feels like cheap, instantly gratifying sludge that was made in around three hours. I am tired of hearing the same 'waarrrp warp wobble wobble' bassline with the same cut-up ragga vocals over and over again. At the same time, and on a more positive note, I can feel a change happening, especially in London. One that involves a return to 'dance' music, whether it is informed by Minimal, House or Techno or whatever. A welcome return to music that was originally made to make your feet move, as opposed to make your jaw drop and one where music is a little more subtle and allowing than before. All this is a little strange when considering that London is the birthplace of 'boy music fidget' and a place where (in some 'tastemaking' circles anyway) that 'Minimal' and 'House' never quite took off.

I also hesitated when uploading this track, for various reasons (one being that I had found this track a while back and wanted to hold onto it for myself), but at the same time I figure it is important this shit reaches as many people as possible and shows them that music can be amazing without being extreme. As usual, play loud (on good speakers) and make sure you BUY the whole EP over there on Beatport.
