Addis Posse

Let The Warriors Dance Retrip

About this item

Presenting a fully legit, remastered and repackaged reissue of this extremely sought after, cult 12" from the Addis Posse featuring unreleased and previously unheard music.

The Addis Posse was one of the main outfits on Warrior's Dance. Featured on this very special EP is the much sought after "Pirate Acid Mix" of this original breakbeat masterpiece, which has been a huge festival winner with the likes of Peggy Gou, Palms Trax and Josey Rebelle amongst others last Summer. Joined also by a previously unreleased, (and pulled from DAT tape) "Alternative Acid Version" which has never been seen or heard before! Across the EP’s 4 cuts are all the 'definitive' versions of this absolute dancefloor bomb - WD fashion - right and correct! Essential business, right here!

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 Ababastudio 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.


Matt says: There's plenty of break hardcore resurgance records out at the moment but here we go straight to source, doning our finest Spliffy jeans and heading to the deserted motorway bridges of the M1 for four unreleased trax from market leaders Addis Posse. All the massiv!
