Stereo MCs - Ground Level vs Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter vs Benga Lightbulb vs Fun Boy 3 – Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum.

I was obsessed by dubstep at this time...and also we had the American Election in 2008, this was released around the time Obama was elected...a strange time of terrorism and hope, fear and change. We've just gone through a similar time, and it's interesting how the 'Hope' version of this track - I did two versions - hasn't aged well but Fear is eternal, sadly.

Not sure I dig the double time thing, hard to do different without acapellas but a moment in time, hence being here. Also the Hope version is in the bonus.

Apols to Shephard Fairey for the art inspiration!
