This is not exactly a song of the week. It’s more a tip off to a mini-movement.
Random Impulse is a rapper/MC who also happens to play guitar. Every Sunday he ‘refixes’ a popular track – building it from scratch and then adds a freestyle over the top. A very simple recipe which is very filling.
This week he refixes Devlin’s Runaway. What I like about Random Impulse’s covers is the way he adds colour, tweaking it and using his guitar to the max. This turns Runaway from a fairly lightweight instrumental in to a bit of a beast (and I prefer it to the original).
Long live Impulse Sundays… by the way, go to http://randomimpulses.wordpress.com/ for the previous covers (and new ones when they’re posted)
P.s. random point… am I the only one who thinks Devlin and Professor Green are the same person?
