The core of our existence, our situation here, is expressible as the Duality. It's in you & all around you; if you start making a list, you'll just never stop:
Dark / Light
Good / Evil
Love / Hate
Man / Woman
Mine / Yours
On / Off
Alone / Together
You see what I mean, and you can just keep on going with your own....
In this session, the song that most completely captures this Duality is “Maybe” by Emeli Sandé, and that's also the point where the set goes from lyrical to instrumental, from emotional to dispassionate.
Along the way, you'll hear new music from Jon Kennedy, the man with the rhythm, whose uncategorizable style has been a favorite since the early days; from Maceo Plex comes the brilliant notion of remixing Steve Reich's “Music for 18 Musicians” into an evanescent house music concoction, a mini-duality all its own. And finally, from Banks, the crushing urgency of “Before I Ever Met You”. And there you are again: Before / after ... the Duality.
