DAMASTER - Shavula Vula (1989)

Orange Records / Tusk OEH003
Producer: D.T. Mosa
Engineer: Julia Mabika
Recorded at: Mix Rec


Synths in the service of the most high. Walls of brain-melting keyboards, pounding drum machines, funky basslines, uplifting vocals and great songwriting, especially on the title track, "Miyelane", "Yeso" and "Thembile". All good.
