So hard to believe that this tune is 12 years old!
I am feeling my age tonight as I listen to this.
The tune is a Squarepusher remix of DJ Food's 'Sratch Yer Head' and is from the Refried Food album on Ninja Tune.
This track kinda starts off as a beat fest with abstract rhythms on the go, for a few minutes but then, in all honesty, the reason why I love this song so much, the most beautiful bass playing comes in at around 3 mins and 15 seconds and this is then tightly wrapped up in those beats which seems to make sense of it all.
When this came out I was surrounded by a massive amount of great music a lot of which has been forgotten about or stored away in old vinyl boxes, CD cases, mixtapes, etc, I had totally forgotten about who this song was by and every now and again would think of this bass section and wonder if I'd ever find it again.
As I browsed around Bleep tonight I came across it and so had to share it.
See below for a piece on Squarepusher also-a freakin' bass virtuoso.

Much thanks to Laef over at Ninja Tune (North america) though for putting the tune onto imeem so you can still hear it.
