A Case Of the Orphan Drug Act.

This song is one of my calmer favorites. I would consider it hip-hop jazz, but it shares some principle elements with electronic music. It is a very thoughtful and thought provoking. The song is by Ayur off of the "Beautiful Field" artist compilation album. I find that sometimes songs draw out our individual buried memories, so every single song effects everyone differently. For some people this song might evoke memories of lost family members; for others it might recall the feel of a lover's embrace. Some people won't give the song a second thought. That is what is so amazing about music: we all hear the same frequencies, pitches, and movements but in reality we are all listening to completely different songs because of our experiences. Ayur sampled "I miss you" by Noriko Kose for this song, at the beginning he samples a backwards version of Nujabes' "Reflection Eternal" (which sampled Noriko Kose as well).
