with its pulsating beat, this track has become a dancefloor favourite & has been given a sturdier club feel courtesy of Opolopa on his “Kick & Bass Re-Rub”.

Gregory Porter as narrator, sounding like Amiri Baraka, declares on “1960 What?” that “the motor city is burning y’all—that ain’t right” & refers to Martin Luther King Jr.’s death & describes trigger-happy policing (supported by a trumpet that blares, jabs, rumbles & yearns). The song portrays how certain events turn people against the possibilities of life & light.
