"Rappers then were in their late teens and made feelgood, upbeat songs to party to, so this was completely new. Luckily, Sylvia had the force and foresight to put it out. Grandmaster Flash himself wasn’t on the song. He didn’t think people wanted to hear that shit. Melle Mel was so mad about that.Musically and lyrically, I wanted to do something different. A lot of thought went into it. I used to call it trance music – the melody has an asymmetric structure, but the bassline stays the same throughout. Usually, a song has one hook and verses, but “Don’t push me, ‘cos I’m close to the edge” is one hook and “It’s like a jungle sometimes” is another. At the time, I was listening to Brian Eno’s My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, so I used a lot of electronic effects and percussion sounds.”-Jiggs Chase, co-producer

John Martyn - Small Hours

 John Martyn

John Martyn is Britain’s most unjustifiably underrated songwriter. I defy anyone to suggest another so overlooked who innovated, inspired and influenced as much as he did throughout his 40 year career. His music relentlessly evolved and mutated, never staying still, drifting through style and genre until the lines blurred so much that there was no genre. It was just his sound, unmistakeable. 

Small Hours is taken from his 1977 album One World, released when Martyn was, in my opinion, at his most creative and experimental. Recorded across a lake in the early hours the ambient sounds - the geese, the lapping water - blend with his floating guitar to make an intimate soundscape that steals you for almost nine minutes and still leaves you wishing it was just a minute longer. If you haven’t heard this, you owe it to yourself to listen. If you have, you owe it to John.
