Presenting a fully legit, remastered and repackaged reissue of this legendary afro-house classic for 2018. London's Warriors Dance label was a unique operation and a pioneering London label during the late 80's acid house phenomena. Home to an assortment of DJs, MCs and soundmen, they went on to make their own original and indelible mark on the rave scene from the infamous 'Addis Ababa' studio on Harrow Road on the North-West side of the city. A former reggae and soul studio that was instrumental to the output of influential artists like Soul II Soul and more, a steady diet of reggae, bass, hip-hop, house and techno kept their edgy, and diehard UK sound and style right at the cutting edge of the dance music underground across the globe with the top DJs and producers of the day celebrating the label. The studio, helmed by label owner Tony ‘Addis’, acted as an incubator for artists whose names would go down in the history books. Tony's own No Smoke, a project with associate Fred McPablo, was one such name, and their 1989 uber classic 'Koro Koro' is a record that should need no introduction. A record that gained fame in its native London through being absolutely caned by the cream of the crop of the nascent acid house scene at the time. 'Koro Koro' was one of those records that had DJ's and dancers clamouring to get a copy, so much so that it was subsequently picked up and licensed by labels in the USA where the record had fallen into the hands of DJ's such as Tony Humphries, Masters At Work and many more, fast becoming an all-time classic in the states too. Essentially 'Koro Koro' birthed a new style of House and Techno music, fusing together tribal, African and percussive elements with analogue synths, hardcore street-style drum programming and a warehouse attitude. All very Warriors Dance indeed! This is basically one of those classic records, completely essential. All killer, no filler! The EP is presented again, in its full 1989 form with all 4 cuts intact. No edits, no remixes, just the pure unadulterated WD vibe, featuring original label artwork tweaked by Atelier Superplus and lovingly remastered by Optimum Mastering, Bristol, UK. Special thanks to Nicky Trax & Tony Addis.
