Notes
Special versions taken from the forthcoming Skint/Columbia release MUZIKIZUM



X-Press 2 is an English electronic and dance music duo. The members are DJ Diesel (Darren House) and DJ Rocky (Darren Rock). Ashley Beedle left to pursue solo projects in 2009.

X-Press 2 first rose to underground prominence through the tracks "Muzik Express" and "London Xpress". X-Press also gained plaudits on the club scene for regularly parading in clubs with their multi-decked (up to twelve decks with three DJs) sets.


It has been talked about in hushed tones since its completion last summer. It is the untouchable highlight of X-Press 2's DJ sets - and has been for months. It's a masterpiece. X-Press 2 present 'Lazy' .Much much more than an anthem for the clubs, 'Lazy' is a truly great pop record that delights at every step. With the legendary David Byrne on vocals, 'Lazy' is X-Press 2's first proper vocal excursion. The sound of the ante being properly raised.

Hooking up with David Byrne was just the catalyst that X-Press 2 needed. A life long ambition that didn't disappoint. Byrne had originally called up several years ago to request the Ballistic Brothers (in the belief they were a fully live band!) as the support on his European tour. Move on several years and work on X-Press 2's album had produced a track that was sounding a little like Talking Heads.

X-Press 2's engineer James Brown suggested David Byrne, Skint got on the case and the result was a transatlantic exchange of tapes and probably one of David Byrne's finest vocal performances for years.

David Byrne as a man is full of art and magic" and it shines through here. Byrne's distinctive vocals on 'Lazy' are a million miles away from the 'take me higher' diatribe of most house records. Whatever it is it's genius. Driving to work or hands in the air, 'Lazy' has it covered.


The way David Byrne pronounces the stop could be my favorite part of the track. Especially with the beat, bass and rhythm that ensues. And lastly, Norman Cook was the remixer. I think everybody knows Norman Cook under his alias Fatboy Slim. A very great remix he has produced indeed.

The combination of all these points create a track that has so much tempo and groove that I find it very hard to imagine that someone could dislike it. Released in 2002, even after ten years the track sounds great!


X-Press 2 ft. David Byrne - Lazy

This is one of my favorite tracks ever. Just listen to the intro! As a matter of fact, it was also my introduction to David Byrne. This track just works both musically and vocally.

This is due to a few points. First of all, X-Press 2 make great oldskool house tracks like Muzik Xpress and Muzikizum. Secondly, David Byrne is a great vocalist. He just has a great voice for singing. Another point is that the lyrics are great, who isn’t sometimes as lazy as this?

“Good times, good God
I’m so lazy I almost stop!“




Fatboy Slim - Lazy (Live)
