    Released on Soul:r. Marcus Intalex runs the label responsible for my favourite release series right now - FourFit. The 5th instalment sees tracks from Tokyo Prose, Zero T, FD and LSB. For ages now I've been skipping to 41:16 in Marcus' recent Sunandbass podcast just to hear a snippet of this song. When I saw the email saying my download was ready, I couldn't wait to get home and listen to this song in its entirety. An unquestionable beauty, Tokyo Prose's 'Tell Me' is magical. The other three tracks on the release are all wicked, but there's just something about this song. Listen and enjoy.

    Lovely EP, as usual from Soul:r. Big tune from Tokyo Prose as well, who fulfilled a personal dream with this release as well I believe. Was nice seeing Presha's support for that, even though it's a tune/ep not being released on his own imprints and he's got his own Tokyo Prose EP to market as well!

    But yea, as always, big up Tokyo Prose

    Fourfit is probably the best recent run of releases, each one is brilliant.

    Tell Me, i'm not even going to bother describing how much i like it.

    Every now and then a track gets released that I just obsess over. And keep playing and playing and playing.
    Tell Me is one of said tracks.

    So so good. Haven't stopped listening to this and the FD track all day.
    No idea what most of the vocals say, but thats probably a good thing. My colleagues are already annoyed by my constant table drumming.

    Am I going crazy or has there been some talk of another album from Tokyo Prose that has been getting the buzz recently?

    YOU SAY WHO WE ARRRRREEEE

    Is that what the vocal sample says? I don't care, it's what I've been singing anyway

    I get:

    "You say you here (fear?) that makes you stay heeeeere. Everything, tell me don't leave, everything, tell me (please/don't leave?)"

    Glad this one is getting such a good response.

    "You say you'd be all, that makes you stay here
    Tell me baby, tell me never leave".

    I know it doesn't make sense :)

    you say who we are, that makes you stay here
    tell me baby, tell it to me.

    but i've never been good at listening to what women say.

    It making sense comes a very firm second to the dreaminess.

    And boy is it dreamy.

    Easily one of the most gorgeous tunes this year, even if none of us think the lyrics make sense! :teeth:
