Z is hitting you with first track from the debut album by Akabu, Dave Lee’s pseudonym for his more electronic housey material.
The album “The Phuture Ain’t What It Used To Be” is due early next year and is filled with deep, musical, properly underground grooves but which still posses enough energy to keep the dancefloor busy.
“Sax My Bitch Up” has a killer bass line and insistent sax riffing from Jim Knight (who has played on many a Sunburst Band track and is also half of the Steely Dan– esque Talc) and a generally moody vibe.
An instant crowd pleaser for the few DJs who have been lucky enough to have had the track over the summer.
20/20 Vision artists Audiojack provide a more techy remix to the package.
Also included are the more stripped down 'Piano...' and 'Drug...' versions from Dave Lee plus extra bonus track “Freak Out The Freaks”.
