Alpinestars : Burning Up

Insane...

Swirling electronics gather pace like a dope tornado arising from Music's tourbus. The vocals are 'out there' like they've just stumbled home after 24 hours on the 'cid with Nick Jago. It's dark. It's mysterious. It's druggy as fuck. And then the chorus kicks in and it's Take That's 'Could It Be Magic' mixed with Toni Braxton's 'Unbreak My Heart'. Only for the vaguely-wasted generation. Insane.
