It’s moments like this that make my heart melt. Without getting too personal and mushy, I used to work at the college where Mark (Ambassadeurs) was studying a year or so ago, and thinking about him making music like this in the studios I used to care for, just makes me feel all warm inside.
Here Ambassadeurs has managed to make something bigger than the sum of all it’s parts. For all the ‘heads’ out there, it’s brimming with influences from all corners of the global beat scene, without a hint of thievery, just glorious references abound. The arrangement is impecable, teasing with jukey triplets, skipping hats and awash with a glow that’s becoming familiar to those already accustomed to his work.
If this is anything to go by, it’s gonna be a very good year for Ambassadeurs. And it’s a FREE DOWLOAD for god’s sake!
