Lion’s Den

Aaron English Lion's Den

Diggin’ this new single from Aaron English and Seattle-area electronica artist Reprecode: I hear shades of DM (Perfect), The Shamen, Simple Minds, Chemical Brothers, and a dash of Neil Tennant. I still can’t put my finger on why, but there was a twinge of something in here that made me think of something space jazzy audiomixologist Ezraw would do.

Listening to music is like eating food. I taste the cinnamon, savor the apples, ponder the (DF, SF, GF) butter in the crust, linger over the nutmeg– there are layers in such music just like there are in a pie. I think of how the dish evolved and what factors might have influenced it. I remember eating Chehalis apples fresh off of the family fruit trees…

There is food and music that isn’t healthy for us, so it pays to be selective. But truly good food, like music, can still be found, and it can similarly lift one’s spirits.

It’s always a pleasure to see what English does next, and you know it’s a good song when you’re walking around the house making up your own version of it almost immediately. Walk me into the kitty pen…


If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. -Albert Einstein
