About this item

Betty & The Code Red is a life and creative partnership between Benin-born Tunde Obazee and his girlfriend Betty. The pair grew up in Nigeria and would play all manner of instruments to entertain people at the local school before staying together as they went on to live in Italy and the US. Obazee performed at colleges and universities despite no formal training and eventually recorded a selection of tunes together including a small album on relatively new bits of gear like the Yamaha RX7. Emotional Rescue has collated some of their best work across two new EPs, this being one of them.


Matt says: I didn't need much convincing on this one! Funky world exotica driven by the RX7 and other similar pieces of classic hardware. Oozing soul and good vibes throughout, shut the curtains, get this on the deck and drift off into your own paradise.
