The Art Of Being In Between

Here is a song that I have loved since I first heard it around 2004. "The Art Of Being In Between" it's from a band called Fuzz Against Junk. I know very little about this band except that is featured in the 3rd compilation released from the now defunct independent record label Nuphonic. Based in London, England, the label was founded in 1994 by Sav Remzi and David Hill with the aim of releasing and promoting dance music that reflected their passion for Jazz, Funk, Soul and ethnic music. Faze Action was one their biggest breakthrough bands that released on of my favorite cult classics such as the cello-led disco track "In The Trees". In addition they have released music from Block 16, Fug, Adam Goldstone, Idjut Boys and Norman Jay. Another of my favorite Nuphonic releases were David Mancuso's educational two volumed Loft compilations. Unfortunately, this great label folded in 2002 due to a decline in physical sales and the shifting tastes of the buying public. Sav Remzi continues to feature amazing acts from his new label called Tirk Records. The roster includes New Young Pony Club, Fujiya & Miyagi, Maurice Fulton, Groove Armada, Greg Wilson, Chaz Jankel, Love Supreme, Sorcerer and many others. I simply love this song for its simplicity, harmonica and beats. Enjoy!
