Laws Of Nature MP3 cover

Everything has gone a bit hectic here – we’re moving house in a few weeks, and our little one has just this week started crawling!

Anyway, here’s the first new tune in a few months. This one has been in the works for some time (delayed by house move stuff, mostly), and is intended to form part of my upcoming release on Echodub, due out sometime in the Autumn.

I guess “Laws Of Nature” is all about our own existence really – that many of us have come to see ourselves as somehow separate to “nature”, and that we think ideas like “conservation of nature” are the reserve of special interest groups, rather than about the preservation of that which literally allows us to live.

I’ve felt for a very long time now that we humans desperately need to recognise our place (and important role to play) within what we call “nature” and “ecosystems”. We are not outside of it – we belong to it as an integral part, and if we don’t take much better care of our home, we are basically finished.

I have a lot of faith that a radically different type of world is something we will, in time, manage to pull together and achieve – for the good of everybody. I hope I’ll be there to enjoy it, too!

Anyway, while watching a documentary about something-or-other, I found a great speech sample for this track, which happens to be bang in-line with my own philosophy on the matter – so that’s where the idea for this track came from.

As always, you can hear a full preview of it in the webplayer, on the Muteqx MySpace page, on Soundcloud, or you can download a medium quality MP3 for offline listening.

DJs, drop me an email if you’re interested in a 320 promo.
