For me on this release its always gonna be .... Just close yours eyes and listen .... and that is what you need to do!

Sounding like piece of 80's soul - think Maze and Frankie Beverley and you won't be far wrong...this tune is made for hot summers and played outside on big systems!

Pure vibes

I think there is also a little sample taken from the "Alien" movie of 1979. It's only repeated a few times in the whole tune. Quite a few times actually now I've listened to it again.
Well, I know it is coz I've watched that movie a zillion times and it's one of the incidental music sounds in it. So there.

I heard this on a late night show with fabio on Radio 1 when I was young man, then I heard it on Don fm a few weeks latter, loved it then and love it now. A classic, which will always be one you must have if your a GLR fan.

Only one word can describe both of these tracks.... BEAUTIFUL!

I have been listening to drum and bass music since its birth in the early 90's and, quite frankly, both of these tracks (when compared to today’s standards) are timeless classics.

If you like the deep and intelligent style of old school drum and bass then these are definitely two tunes to hear before you die - best listened to on a warm summer’s day.

Just close your eyes and listen!

"I've said it before and I'll say it again. Life moves pretty fast; you don't stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it". A classic sample, taken from Matthew Broderick's end monologue to camera at the end of the 1986 film 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' kicks off Chameleon's 'Links'; a track that was included on Bukem's seminal 'Logical Progression' album. Although described in many quarters as an 'intelligent' track, 'Links' rides along on a bumpy-yet-funky Amen break, interspersed with male vocal 'Woaah' stabs.

The AA is where the magic is. Propelled by a snappy 2-step break and a neat subby b-line, 'Close Your Eyes' is awash with synths, strings and vocal samples and is really quite lovely, a high point both for Pritchard & Middleton and Good Looking.
