For those that dont know Elementary by ear, it is just straight up, proper electronic funk. four to the floor, some rhodes-y keys and a 16 bar bassline that is just smoooooove. some tasteful drum programming keeps things moving along nicely.

A lot of you will already know 'Elementary', by ear, which got some air time after it appeared, like the other B side track, on the 'Time: Space' CD on Transmat. The big track on side A didn't quite blow-up so much and it's not hard to see why. It's not exactly out-there in terms of elements, but the arrangement is pretty odd. It's comprised of a barely finished, muddy, oscillating synth phrase on the lower mid range, some backward string washes topped-off with occasional intercession of chattering sax (which might as well have been sampled, although it appears a contributor has dug out the person who played it.) The real utility of 'Dark Passage' though is the carefully step-sequenced drum run which gets sent to a nicely-timed delay half-way through. It will work on the floor and because it's mostly tone-neutral, it's 'a mixer'.
