Recommends: Saada Bonaire

Recommends: Saada Bonaire

Conceived by German DJ Ralf Behrendt in 1982, Saâda Bonaire brought together sultry female vocalists Stefanie Lange and Claudia Hossfeld, The Slits producer Dennis Bovell and copious musical talents from the local immigration centre. The world infused dub disco project only had one single to boast - the leftfield freedom anthem You Could Be More As You Are.

Foolishly canned by the suits at EMI upon release, the group now have a second chance with this 13 track compilation on Captured Tracks that resurrects lost gems from their sessions at Kraftwerk's studio in Cologne. With never before published photos and in depth interviews, this is a must buy for fans of Lizzie Mercier Descloux, Grace Jones and the Compass Point sound.
