“Trance Dance” by DJ Krush & Hamid Baroudi

Malcom Gladwell in his best-selling book “Outliers” proposes that it requires approximately 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery of a craft.  I have no hesitation about whether DJ Krush has put in his time and filled out his timesheets as a DJ/Producer/Instrumentalist.

The more inspired we are, the simpler it is for us to get our point across:

A simple guitar loop, dusty drums, a turntable, a few synths and gorgeous vocals from Algerian singer Hamid Baroudi are the ingredients in this masterpiece.

From Japan with love.
