Chill out Guru's Groove Armada are not an act that would usually be associated with such a raucous track as Purple Haze but the duo have Excelled once again, the Armada who previously released the singles like My Friend and At the River now bring us the diverse Purple Haze. Keep the magical wisdom behind most of Groove Armada's music add a dose of hip hop thanks to Kentucky based Nappy Roots laid over the lyrics of Jamaican MC, Red Rat, with a lacing of bad attitude, through in some down and dirty guitar Riffs similar to the one used in The Guess Who's American Woman (covered by Lenny Kravitz) Picture this mix and you come somewhere close to this single. Purple Haze is definitely one of the strongest tracks that I have listened to in months. Taken off the Armadas future album Love Box (due out on the on the 4th of November) I look forward to listening to some more of Groove Armada's new tracks.
