Because Recollection

I stumbled across this on Twitter due to my living in the immediate present that social media creates, but also always the past.

The record company Because Music have put together, quote: "An interactive journey through 10 years of sound".

And what an interactive journey it is! I will not spoil all the highlights, but I would block out the next hour of your life to have a little play.

Because Recollection.

There was a point of 2015 where I seemed to be driving in the dark a lot. The glare of the street lights and the complete desolation that evening often brings were all the more heightened by this track. Usually on repeat.

Play it on whatever you own that produces the best quality sound. Preferably headphones, in the dark, and loudly. I also insist you listen to the end.

Applebottom may well be a promising producer if Let You is anything to go by.

There is a free download of the track via SoundCloud.

One of my favourite people in the world seems to think I am "cool". She is great all respects, but probably somewhat misguided on that perception of me. But I will let her continue to think that.

So this is for her. Playing this tune gave me a bit of cocky bravado precisely when I needed it most yesterday.

Shamir is all the things you need in life. Catchy, soul-driven, electro fun and even has the all-important cowbell.

Be still my beating heart.
