In 2002, X-Press 2′s deep house single “Lazy” featuring an unlikely collaboration with Talking Head’s David Byrne, became one of the most notable dance records of the decade by hitting the top of the UK charts. The breakout single from the ‘Musikism’ album, ‘Lazy’ featured Byrne speaking and singing over a barely up-tempo house track.

In this live interview Point Blank’s Course Developer and EMC (Electronic Music Composition) course tutor Ski Oakenfull (who deconstructs ‘Lazy’ as part of our online EMC course) and presenter Luke Hopper chatted to Rocky and Diesel about the track, what made it so infectious, their approach in the studio and the story behind the vocal.
