Sounds from the Ground
The U.K.'s Elliot Morgan-Jones and Nick Woolfson unite their sonic trance-inducing techniques under the moniker Sounds from the Ground. "Drawn to the Woman," a track from the 1996 Waveform Records release Kin features dreamy melodies swirling around downbeat rhythms like fog gathering over a cityscape on fast forward. Silky female spoken word vocal samples slink in and out of the celestial mix like expensive lingerie. Inspiring lyrics and delicate bouts of giggles waft up from a pool of earthy ambient bliss. Though best utilized as a soundtrack for the steamy scenes of yet another "9 1/2 Weeks," the digital, electric edge on these soft grooves maintain a chill-out appeal for intimate rooms.
