Superlife - Go Bananas
Produced by one of Detroit's most mysterious and unknown first wave producers Danan Potts(R.I.P.). Who?! I hear you cry! Thought you may ask that...read on.
This one is a sick, sick ultra minimal Detroit Electro/Techno track! Certainly ahead of its time and on another level! And to think this bomb was released the same year as Cybotron's 'Cosmic Cars' yet still remain(ed)s pretty much unknown. Quite interesting I'm sure you'll agree?
Now forward some 19 years later and something totally unexpected happened. Yes, 2011 saw an unbelieve and much appreciated repress thanks to the great PPU Records label. So massive respect to Washington's Andrew Morgan(he really knows his sh*t) for allowing this cool and sought after track to(finally) be available for everyone!!
It even came with additional bonus mixes from New School heroes Steve Summers and Legowelt!! As to be expected, both turn in very cool versions.
For even more info on Danan Potts, here's the original PPU Records press blurb:- R.I.P. Danan Potts.
