Tanya Stephens & King Kong - A Scorchin' Powerlink ...

Watta wicked combination release from Powerlink International, known for their mashups - which to date never really peaked my interest - but hold up... Dis ya one a serious scorcher!

The a side features Tanya Stephens' It's A Pity over what sounds like a re-edited version of the b side of Mike Brooks' Come One Come All (All Around Dub) on the Queen Of The Minstrel Riddim - released in 1979 on the Coptic Lion label. Wicked rub a dub feel to it, and the track flows well - not a jarring mashup at all. Lindo P also used parts of this same riddim version on his song Ain't No check his MySpace for the track.

As if the Tanya track wasn't enough, they load up the b side with another boom shot - King Kong's Foundation Sound vocals remixed over another classic riddim - which eludes me at the moment. Gwaan get yourself a copy, Juno UK, EB Reggae, etc - all got dem in stock - for now... Nice one - Powerlinkin' it fee true Iyah!
