This was an idea that I had for a soundtrack to a fictitious James Bond-type movie; and yes, I straight up jacked the title from a Portishead song and short film of the same name.

Between 1996-1999, there were many groups that fit this particular musical genre, and there were also a lot of different styles of music that did this sort of stuff (e.g., Trip Hop, Acid Jazz, Lounge, Drum & Bass, Rock, etc.).  I put in a bunch of ambient interludes between the songs (taken from various Future Sound Of London and DJ Spooky albums), slapped everything together, and voila!
