#songbender part 11 – Aphrodite – Spice (Ever Spicier)
time for some dnb, and some jump-up dnb while we’re at it.
they say this is the most primitive and uninteresting form of dnb as it has no value and does not have the delicacies that the “real” dnb does. well, i disagree. I get that jump-up is not always flashy and has these simple themes with a simple break blablabla yadda yadda. but it’s still hard to do properly, and this here is one of my all time fav’s. i just love how it builds, but you need to pay attention – it can serve as a background tune for almost anything, but the almighty aphrodite knows what he’s doin’ y’all. nuff said. we’ll revisit the jump-up and it’s little brother, the so-called Urban Jungle pretty soon i guess. and how can you go wrong with a Dune-themed song, should have been my first point. Man i miss these days on the train with my walkman, dissecting all of these songs.
