THE BELOVED | THE SUN RISING (ZANZIBAR HAS RISEN)

Stripped Goa vibes, was really surprised when I couldn’t find any full length’s of this on the internet. Heavy house beats and killer guitar shred. The Beloved ran into a bit of trouble over the vocal sample on this track (the one that appears just after the title in the chorus). It actually came from A Feather On The Breath Of God, an album of 12th-century plainsong released by the tiny independent label Hyperion, who not unnaturally were rather miffed that they hadn’t been asked! In the end they settled out of court for a modest sum. The same sample turned up again the following year in Orbital’s seminal “Belfast”, but this time it was properly credited, with Hyperion getting their rightful cut.
