Micronawts

Postby djairmax » Sat May 10, 2008 7:46 am

Is anyone familiar with the Micronawts and the song "Smurfacrossdasurf"? I had never heard it (or heard of it for that matter) until a few months ago. Did it get much play and if so, where? Kind of a weird song, but at least it didn't sound like anything else out there.

this is one of my favourite Electro Funk 12"s at the moment. I love it's stripped down drum sounds... And that fuzzy bassline... It's crucial... how this missed out on being included on the STREETSOUNDS mixes LPs is a mystery to me...

it's one fo the earliest releases on the old school label TUFF CITY....

Vocals by AFRIKA BAMBAATAA.....

It's pretty wack to me. It sounds like an unfinished Dub-version of something better.

You're under arrest, GMM. Don't try to cop a plea.

I choose to wave my rights and I will add that the only good thing about it is the hi-hat pattern.

Always loved this track. It is just a raw piece of electro funk and isn't as polished as the later releases.
