    Emotional Rescue follows up the success of our debut, Bob Chance’s Wild It’s Broken, with a reissue of ethno-dub band Suns Of Arqa, with their classic disco-not-dub dancefloor oddity Brujo Magic - featuring the last recording of the legendary Prince Far I.

    As the late 70s British reggae scene found a kinship with and fully embraced punk’s attitude and aesthetic, experimentation pushed further in to dub’s infinite realm. Led by the, enigmatic Wadada, the Suns Of Arqa were at the forefront of this new sound.

    From 1979 and 1983 they released a series of now classic albums that mixed dub rhythms with Balearic and dance flavours and it is these that are the source for the two tracks that make up our first 12” EP reissue.

    Included in SOA’s ever floating line-up were legendary vocalist Prince Far I, on what proved to be his last recording before his untimely demise and also a then young and up and coming producer called Adrian Sherwood on the mixing desk.

    Again remastered especially for this release, Brujo Magic sees Prince Far I laying down his inimitable vocal style over a driving disco-not-dub groove.

    When first talking with Wadada on which version to reissue he sent us a short unreleased version which had a drum and bass rhythm with more kick and bottom end than the original versions – therefore we got the mysterious Apophenia to extend it especially for this release.

    Backed with what has become something of a Balearic secret tune for many underground DJs, Ananta Snake Dance appears here in the it’s original long format.

    Release on 12" vinyl in March 2012.
