Track Of The Day: UNKLE - Ar.Mour (feat. Miink and Elliot Power)

Tantalising trip hop sounds from the new UNKLE album. Mo Wax records founder James Lavelle and a variety of guests feature on 'The Road: Part 2/Lost Highway', which is out 29 March. As well as this superb offering, the LP will also feature last year's single 'The Other Side' which features vocals from Editors’ Tom Smith.

Lavelle says the record is the second part of a trilogy: "I started doing a show on Soho Radio in 2018, which made me think about playing records in a different way. It wasn’t about trying to make people dance in a nightclub. It was a breath of fresh air, and about playing a more eclectic mix. The Road: Part II was made in the same way – it’s a mixtape and a journey. You’re in your car, starting in the day and driving into the night. The language of it was to be the ultimate road trip. It’s the mid-part of a trilogy. The first record is like you’re leaving home; you’re naive and on a journey of discovery. There are elements of my early days in there, as well as a bit of everything since. There’s an optimism and excitement to the record, as there was with me having to direct this project alone for the first time.

This record is the journey. You’re on the road, out there in the world. There are let downs, highs, lows, love, loss and experiences. The third record to come is basically about coming home; wherever that may be."

The track samples Al Green's 'Here I Am (Come and Take Me)' as well as elements from The Funkees's 'Break Through'.
