Long term followers of Dubwise Vinyl will know I'm a big fan of Rae Cheddie's Mystic Red label that put out a string of pretty amazing records in the 90's.
This one is a slight anomaly to the more roots focused productions that the label is famous for, taking on more of a lovers rock vibe. There's also an interesting Wackies connection going on here as Abel and Allen were also Wackies recording artists who featured in groups such as Love Joys (Sonia 'Love Joy' Abel) and Itopia (Tony 'Jah T' Allen) and both tracks featured here were originally recoded by the Love Joys for Wackies.
The cut on the flip 'Gimmie Back' is the winner for me - a lovely slice of stripped back funk driven lovers rock with a dancefloor friendly groove to it that's delivered alongside a pleasingly minimalist yet bass heavy dub.
Unplayed copies of the original press 12" that date back to 1990 available.
