HOWIE B FEAT DJ WORDY – “THATS DOWN”

Having dedicated much of his latter career to composing scores for Chinese cinema, the founding father of Trip-Hop teams up with Chinese turnabilist DJ Wordy and video artist Hiraki Sawa to create a surrealist backdrop to his heavy bass line, cotton candy spun synths and ace scratching throughout.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcvbZpCw6zU
