Touchdown London

I landed this morning in London Heathrow, 45 minutes early, at 645am on a red eye in from San Francisco. The first half of the week is going to be in Cambridge for a set of meetings facilitated by ARM Limited with the various partners and customers of their IP. Should be quite interesting, and as a bonus I’ve never been to Cambridge so I’m looking forward to seeing the town. The second half of the week is in London, meeting with various media partners, which is always fun. As always it’ll be hectic and somewhat exhausting and jetlag is already starting to slow me down, but I’m looking forward to this week.

Track of the Week: Lionheart by Emancipator

Track of the week is back, baby! This week’s track is lionheart by emancipator, off of soon it will be cold enough. And we’re back this week with a very low key track that I first heard on the Stargate Studios 2009 Reel (I highly suggest you watch if you want to see how TV is made), and then rediscovered when @inxsingh sent me a link to the entire Emancipator album.

The entire album is a wonderful juxtaposition of strings and piano and other classical instruments over solid drum lines. As an example, the song eve has an amen break-esque drum line on top of which are processed vocals and violins. Lionheart in particular carries it’s melody on a wonderful combination of electric guitar, violins, and a piano riff. On a day like today when it’s early August but out my window all I see is fog and the mid 50s, this is the kind of music that will bring you up slowly and get you ready for a day.
