Talk about street level, 'Pavement Soul' is definitely something built from the ground up and in this case, from Mancunian musical roots.

Chris Massey's Thief Of Time project is a look back at some of his electronic inspirations with deeply spaced out beats and some synth-pop dub. 

The track 'Pavement Soul' is a strong mix of trip-hop and post-punk disco funk that benefits from A Certain Ratio's Donald Johnson on bass (ACR being hip again of late) along with another Manchester based artist, NIIX on ethereal vocals and gentle rap.

Those with long memories may recall Hybrid worked with Peter Hook (he of New Order, etc) [blimey, 'True To Form' was 2003] so who knows where this project will lead in terms of guests?  

But on a more immediate note, The Mayor’s Charity will benefit from a donation from initial sales (three versions as in original, instrumental and radio edit) so it's all in a good cause and one to support.
