3rd Release from Renegade Screw - Blind Foley Leith Mindstate EP - Free ambient dnb breaks download
The first and long awaited Blind Foley release on Renegade Screw had a purpose which was to tantalise you ear drums. You will be doused in jazz and set alight in a fire of funk on an eclectic musical journey through Edinburgh's dark wet streets.
By: Renegade Screw
With no definitive scene around him Blind Foley took the idea to gather up every sound, thought and feeling and stick it into the mixing bowl. What came out was a fruitful journey that made its way through an incredible number of genres and influences ranging from the ambient yet majestic 'Rain on Leith', the DnB tinged 'Banana Flats...' and ending on the magnificent 'Kung-Fu Kick' which showcases the artists very special brand of minimal techno.
Whilst comparisons can be made to artists such as Four Tet and Mr Scruff, this EP still manages to retain a sound of it's own and would certainly not sound out of place on the Ninja Tunes label.
Look out for collaborations with Phat Koknoz as Blind Foley is now ready to expand his sound even further. There is already a remix of his instant classic Foolish working it's way through the musical underground. Grab yourself a copy if you can find it!! It is also rumoured that Renegade Screw will be releasing an entire remix album so keep an eye out for that.
Leith Mindstate has not been available for long but it is on course to have its second week with 1000 downloads. You can get it free here http://www.mininova.org/
