Hayden James – Permission To Love


A big band for me growing up was Art of Noise.  I loved their 12″ singles.  I would consistently play them when I was young, so anything that sounds to my ears as an ode to Art of Noise, be it even a small little sample, is enough to catch my ears.  Which is case in point from this track from Hayden James.  It’s the vocal maniuplation of the hook, “I give permission to love” that makes me happy.  Simple, yes, but it’s what I like.
