I worked on a project last month that gave a taste of Massive Attack origins.  I think I know where they were looking for inspiration now.  Wow.  “Welcome to tonight’s Essential Mix on One FM. And now for something a little different, we head down to Bristol and hand the turntables over to Massive Attack! Standby.”  Broadcasted on Sunday 11th December, 1994.  How can this intro not give you chiiiiiiilllls?
