This instrumental piece was only ever intended to be a bit of fluff, really, and it was recorded many years ago.

However, since I uploaded the track to SoundCloud a few months back, it seems to have generated a lot of plays without any particular promotion on my part.

It features samples from a UK House of Commons debate about the arts and I guess it must be doing the rounds among online politicos because it's been my most frequently played and downloaded track recently.

There is no lyric.

Nice job Steve. I love the funky feel of it. To me the kick seemed to be distorting at times, aside from that no nits.
Very cool grove!

Nice one!! I think this song still says something, even without a lyric, very interesting!! Great beat to it!!
