It’s been a bit of a cinematic-slash-psych day on MB today and the monkey figured if it ain’t broke why fix it? So here’s news of the new single from Don Leisure – Valery’s Fate. Don Leisure is, of course, one half of First Word Records signings The Darkhouse Family – no strangers to making atmospheric beats influenced by the sounds from way out – which describes Valery’s Fate perfectly. The main sample source for this evocative head-nodder is 70s and 80s era-Soviet music picked up by the Don on his travels and you can see it working as well as a sound canvas for an MC as it does in its pure instrumental form boding well for the forthcoming Steel Zakuski beat tape.
