Mr. Scruff – Music Takes Me Up
The third installment of Mr. Scruff‘s Ninja Tuna series is here! Previously we’ve had Donkey Ride/Giant Pickle and then Kalimba/Give Up To Get, but now we have Music Takes Me Up featuring none other than Alice Russell. Out now on both 12″ vinyl and mp3, the release also includes the tracks The Clock and Fix That Speaker.
Music Takes Me Up is a piano driven classic Mr. Scruff track, real head nodder with a very addictive melody, and fantastic vocals from Alice Russell too. The 12″ contains a longer five and a half minute long version of the track whilst the mp3 download has a radio edit a bit beyond three minutes. The Clock is a wonky downtempo dance track with some guitar and a healthy dose of brass and keys. Finally, Fix That Speaker is an upbeat jazzy affair, riding strong with a brass section and a stomping beat.
