Guy 'Plez' Pleasant dropped this monstrous slab of proto-tribal Techno on his own Plezure label way back in '88. The rest, as they say, is history. A stone cold NYC club bomb was dropped. Literally. The fact that this record is still played, still talked about, still sought after really says something about it's heady mix of heads down dark corner tribalism, it's screeching, soaring synth lines and it's sheer balls out attitude. This one goes off. A cursory glance shows that Plez only did a handful of records, with "Can't stop" definitely being the biggest and most well known and loved (honorary tip of the cap to 'Thing for you' here too). The 'Acid rainforest' mix featured on this 12" is a dangerous weapon in any DJ's bag, submerging the dance-floor into an otherworldly jungle planet. Heavy, heavy stuff.
Here's the chance to bag yourself a classic slice of NYC dance history, sounding as heavyweight as ever, ready to do damage. Fully remastered specially for Mint Condition, 'I can't stop' is back, as notorious as ever. Legitimately re-released with the full involvement of Guy 'Plez' Pleasant for 2017 and remastered from the original DAT's specially for Mint Condition by London's very own Curvepusher. 100% legit, licensed and released. Dug, remastered, repackaged and brought to you by the caring folks at your new favourite reissue label - Mint Condition!.
