Crazy Detroit techno boogie reissued! Superlife's "Go Bananas" is one hell of a record and easily the most anticipated PPU release to date (just look at the remixers on here). The track was originally recorded and released back in 1982 and is an extremely rare piece of party-starting proto-techno from Detroit. Think "Shari Vari" but even more freaky and robotic and you're on the right track. As the story goes, Danan Potts (aka Superlife) was hanging around the Recording Institute of Detroit where Juan Atkins was training in production. Danan was interested in Atkin's style of dance music and quickly recorded "Go Bananas". Bananas was released locally on Southern Sun Records in hyper limited quantity, it is today one of the most sought after underground detroit techno recordings of all time. Get it here on double 12" with the original instrumental, PLUS a gang of new version from today's top talent including Peanut Butter Wolf, Steve Summers & Legowelt of L.I.E.S. fame, and Max D of Beautiful Swimmers/Future Times! Recommended.
