A list of our top 5 tracks of the first quarter of 2011 would undoubtedly include (All I Wanted Was) Danger by The Milk. Quite simply it’s a piece of brassy hip swinging soulful brilliance. Can a song become a classic when it’s not even been released yet? Answer = Yes, quite possibly in our world. Thankfully that date is not far away now for March 28 sees Britain’s musical answer to Cee Lo Green come storming out of the traps packed full of musical charisma, forcing smiles wherever they go. We’ve yet to see the band live (although will be doing so very soon) but from what we’ve been hearing they absolutely storm it wherever they play and sold out shows are already occurring.
Since we first wrote about the band back in September 2010 The Milk has slowly been building up a weight of praise including positive comments from the likes of The News Of The World, The Guardian, Neon Gold and of course The Fun Lovin’ Criminal himself - Huey from BBC 6 Music who like ourselves has been a massive supporter of the band.
To celebrate and remind you of the tracks release – The Milk’s debut - you’ll find the new video for the song below which is a simple performance piece in a pub, complete with pints and shots - as well as two remixes. The Nextmen and Random Impulse strip away the Staxx flavours and add hip hop beats and a new rap, whilst Greenmoney brings tropical -rhythmic house flavours and some heavy carnival bass. The Greenmoney remix is available for free download, so grab it and groove. The god father of soul may have passed away, but The Milk are his grandchildren. Believe it. Top notch stuff.The Milk - All I Wanted Was Danger (Nextmen mix, ft Random Impulse)
