Track of the day and new in the One Love spot: As a beats-useful underlay, eminently samplable, and very nicely funky only in the sense of a rippling hook to its progress, if you are a Bill Withers fan the musical decor in the groove and laidback tempo fits and you might dig it in that regard. 'Look B4U Leap' is drawn from Step on Step that comprises largely unknown home South Side of Chicago basement recordings made by the pianist, arranger, composer and Chess records staff producer Charles Stepney (1931-1976). The bass lines in the layering are the pivot that the track relies on and allow it all to have a logical uplifting shape and structure and lets the groove of the day get off to the right start. Also bookmark these sounds to keep for when it comes to sundown - why not. Step on Step is out on 9 September. Photo: top from the sleeve
