Addis Posse
Let The Warriors Dance Retrip
Warriors Dance
  • FIRST RELEASE 24/01/2020

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. Brand new style for 2020.

The Addis Posse was one of the main outfits on this cult label. 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 this summer. Joined also by a previously unreleased, pulled from DAT tape Alternative Acid Version which has never ever seen or heard before - this is a real treat and one DJs will want to sweat! Across the EP’s 4 cuts are all the 'definitive' versions of this absolute dance floor 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 Ababa' studio 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.

The Addis Posse ‘Let The Warriors Dance’ EP is the pure unadulterated WD vibe, featuring original label artwork tweaked by Atelier Superplus and lovingly remastered by Curvepusher, UK.
Special thanks to Nicky Trax & Tony Addis. Proudly distributed by Above Board distribution. 2020.
