a 4 track ep displaying a perfect balance between stripped back lyrical goodness & dancefloor crunchiness.
'banana skank' is reimagined here by wafa without losing any of the original's joyful reggae pulse. not be outdone, smith links up his own sequel to the original, a kind of motoric good trip / bad trip which reminds yet again what a uniquely talented producer he is. ‘party time’ & ‘natural’ reinforce the point, joined on both tracks by long time banana klan collaborator kope & together the two trade lines & verses in the best traditions of hip hop, their voices (& imaginations) bouncing off each other in an intertwining stream of consciousness. pressed on bright yellow vinyl with a screen printed transparent sleeve.
