the 'salsa smurph (bonus beats)' track is split into three discrete sections: electronic percussion, electronic bass, and vocoder.

Never knew how to play this record - usually played at 33 +8 or on 45 -8... never sounded correct.

S-L-O M-O electro anthem, owing more than a gentle nod to Cat Steven's 'Dog Was A Donut', with proto acid qualities & a spaced out synth line melody. Head for the vocal version, which is is actually a vocoder (the instrumental still features the vocoder, only little difference between the two). Produced by Jose 'Animal' Diaz, best known for his work on Man Parrish's 'Hip-Hop Be-Bop'. Not all received this with open hearts at the time, due to the originality, dark sparse feel & slow tempo, but make no mistake- this is an important piece of electro history & will trip the floor out a treat. Every bit as much an all round electronic classic as an electro classic.

Very cool electro disco vocoder tune somewhat derivative of the first wave of electro; Cat Stevens' 1976 'Was Dog A Doughnut' and Kraftwerk's 1977 'Trans-Europe Express'
Slows down weirdly annoyingly towards end.
