The track "NYC" came to life in London almost by luck, about 12 years ago. My studio neighbours at that time were the group Coldcut (Matt & John). They called to tell us that they've just finished a studio session with an amazing guitarist, and they said that if we wanted he was available to also record something with us since he was right next door. I had a few tracks that were never used, so I play them on loop and told him to go crazy with his guitar, a la George Benson style! NYC is the result of editing the best parts of that amazing 1 hour session. Big favourite of legendary american DJ, Kenny Carpenter, "Cuba Around The Corner", was conceived after I had a few months relationship with a Cuban girl in London. When we were at home we used to listen Cuban (ghetto) streaming radio, which used to play Bossa nova and Salsa all day, so that was the main inspiration. I arranged everything in MIDI, but I still needed a horn section. The solution was Duncun McKay, a strett musician who I saw playing trumpet in a Metro station at London Bridge. So for 50 pounds and some italian red wine the trumpet recording session was done! After a long editing session "Cuba Around The Corner" was finally complete.
