Watch the "Ride With Me" video on YouTube :
The sun is already shining but somehow you’ve managed to stay lucid. What a night! You grab a bite on the way to work, where the same old shit is waiting for you. But no biggie, even the neurotic manager deserves a smile today. You whistle some funky tunes from last night and tap your favorite breakbeats on the side of the keyboard with your fingers, while the hours go by. Back on the streets, that new sub you got for your car really pays off. Who cares about the traffic jam when those walking basslines sound so smooth? After a quick jam in the studio, you’re back at your place. The answering machine light is flashing: you - have - one - new - messages. You listen to her badly recorded voice asking where you’ve been and why you didn’t call. But no time for that now. You hit the road again, this time with your record bag hanging on your shoulder. The place is already full, all the familiar good old faces are there. A soft brass passage emerges from the vinyl crackle, the singer starts humming a tune, singing about a long lost love, people are dancing their worries away and finally you feel at home. Here we go again…
