After the recent death of Kenny Hawkes, friend and studio partner David Parr resurrected a couple of tracks he and Kenny had worked on two summers ago. They unfortunately never made it to release before Kenny's death, but now, after work from David, "Green Grass" is available. This mesmerizing track flits between a jazzy vocal arrangement and deep house with ease - ripples of guitar and pulsing electronic pads create a beautiful and surreal soundscape as the vocals build into an ethereal string harmony. This is timeless house music just the way Kenny liked it. Everybody involved offered their services for free, so everything except the manufacturing costs can go to Kenny's nearest and dearest to help balance the books. Extra Paypal donations can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org. Full support from the Juno team.
