Ross Couch Ft Lazarusman – Wide Open Spaces – Body Rhythm 037

It’s time for my final EP of 2011 on Body Rhythm (though not the final release…there’s a compilation still to come!), and to end the year on a high we’ve got a collaboration with South African poet Lazarusman called ‘Wide Open Spaces’.

This one is available to buy on promo now exclusively from with the other stores to follow at the turn of the year.

This one came about thanks to perfect timing.  Lazarus contacted me to suggest we do something together just as I was working on a rough version of a track I’d titled ‘Wide Open Spaces’.  I sent it to him and he got to work on writing and performing the spoken word lyrics soon after.

At the time the big chords were already there, but after getting his vocal back, which did a great job of capturing the feel of the track, I then re-wrote the rhythm, bass and lead melody to arrive at the final version.  I then started from scratch again with just the vocal to produce an alternative ‘Organic Remix’ and also recorded instrumental mixes of both to round out the package.

You can hear how it turned out via the YouTube preview below…
