about

This track started life in the Emanative - Lions Of Judah Sessions, with the two Nick's laying down the rhythm section. Drums were then re-done (recorded to tape) Marc Rapson and Jessica Lauren had a major part in the writing as did Ben Hadwen & Tamar Osborn with the Horns & Woodwinds. Liz wrote and sang the lyric's after listening to Syreeta, Minnie, Stevie and much of the quality and timeless music of Black Jazz Records.

Jessica had the Clavinet going through the Mutron III and added her usual multi-layers of vintage synthesizer dub sonics.
After the success of Marc Rapson's remix of Emanative's When On Earth and Liz and Marc's collaboration on Love Is All from his own Dark v.s. Light E.P. it made a lot of sense to get him involved.

Hope you dig it.
