Debut release from newcomer label "Canopy" out of New Zealand. Compiled and conceptualised by label head DJ Sumosui. This single features a key track from Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria. Originally released to domestic markets in 1987. The titular track is taken from difficult to attain LP by Nigerian reggae artist Ehi Duncan (RIP). Here he explores a more up-tempo electronic afro funk reggae-disco direction. Proto electronic beat sequencing, stripped back but warm, Balearic tinged Afro-reggae-disco-funk vibes. Captain Planet provides 2 classy modernised versions. The tracks transition between tight organic reggae funk, afro disco & fat electronic beats.
