"Hi NRG Italo Disco Eurobeat inspired synthpop from Durban's own Mike Durandt, it follows the tried and tested formula of potent synths and sultry, effeminate vocals over uptempo rhythms that conjure images of sweaty aerobics studios and suburban discos. It's either generic or timeless, depending on your memories of the era. This is the original South African 12'' Maxi release. Also released in Canada on Power Records."
