Sounds of the Underground
An escalator & lift engineer on the London Underground has got a bit of following by re-mixing sounds he's sampled while working on the Tube into dance music. 28 year old Ben Langham carries a digital recorder on the job and captures sounds of escalators, hacksaws, brakes and trains running over tracks.
He said "I liked the idea of having this concept, noises from behind the scenes on the Tube which the general public don't get to listen to."
Quite like Escalating & Plan your journey.
