With the days getting shorter, you head out walking after work and the sun's already setting as you return. This is Earthbeat weather, locked down inna Parallax stylee, streetwise traffic set against ECM skies. Minute by minute, Prelude and West End set the tone, old 69 records spinning in the background and heads zoning out in the magic of the twilight studio hum. Down in the lab putting basslines to tape, the Terminal Vibrations spooled out, processed vocals in effect and run through the machines. The Sequence and Spoonie Gee, Don't Stop The Rock, it's a Sugar Hill thing.
