FTRK #32 = "Tokyo" by Imperial Arms
Tokyo - Imperial Arms (2011)
(Sampled from "Tokyo" by Tujiko Noriko (2003))
Imperial Arms' (a member of "M12", a group of d&b artists situated in Germany) mix of "Tokyo" is an energenic, drum & bass mix produced as a 'bedroom bootleg'. It takes advantage of the originals various detailed precussion, modifying the ambient base to create a casual, urban rhythm. Its inherent simplicity and sylph-like voice accompanyment bond to create a smoothe, down-to-earth texture. The beats mould together this laquer of sound and produce something like a bittersweet delicacy, a great way to end off the day and set your mind off things.
