Here’s a reasonably well known known but often overlooked release, the Hannibal Lecter EP. Grimey samples plus solid beats. I’ve got to admit that a lot of this charm in this track for me comes from the video game melody, but regardless of that, it’s a fun tune to throw into a mix. This tune samples (among others) MC Lenny “AJD” and the synth from Holy Noise “James Brown is Still Alive”.

Speaking of which, I’ve been meaning to rip that MC Lenny EP for a while, so here it is. This single contains 4 relatively similar mixes of the same track… it’s relatively stripped down and doesn’t really progress or change up much, but it’s a nice catchy tune. I’ve definitely found that half-reversed synth riff stuck in my head a number of times!
