I don’t know much about the artist of this track; there’s hardly any information about C. M. Dance out there. I’ve had this 12-inch record since 1986. I remember walking into Starsound record store in Toronto and seeing Sepe (one of the two Persian owners of the store) opening a new box of records.  He pulled out this record (the very one I bought, the very one you see in the picture), gave it to me and asked me to play it on the store’s turntable system. I decided to play the dub version first. The track kick-started bang on the money: orchestra stabs, delayed/echoed claps which pan left/right, killer kicks thumps, bitch-slapping snare hits, and bassline-pad with thick bottom lava and slight flare-buzz on top.
