Amazingly, I was unable to purchase this record at all while in South Africa for 2 months (although I had heard of and witnessed the devastation that it was causing on local dance floors!!) On the way back to Europe, I chanced upon the whitelabel in an Amsterdam record shop, and picked it up in a heartbeat!

This track has an absolutely incredible ghetto-styled kwaito beat going, with gripping and punishing warbling 303-type lines that hold your focus and spawn energy where it previously was left behind.

The remix adds an "ahhh" type of bassline to the original which, unfortunately, drives out some of the roughness that makes Mujava's original cut so great.

I have been to the townships of South Africa and can definitely agree that this is certified "Township Funk". This record will definitely completely destroy clubs around the world this fall, and I hope it brings a bit of township optimism, energy, and spirit to the world dance scene (as well as a bit of dough to DJ Mujava's pockets!). Mujava! One Love!!!
