THE GHETTO - Body Wave (1989)

Flame/CCP/EMI, FLAME(V)4064461   
Producer: Peter Moticoe   
Engineer: Fab Grosso   
Programmed by: L Matante   
Recorded at: Power House Studios


Above-average bubblegum beats produced by Peter Moticoe, the man who helped launch the careers of William Mthethwa, Mordillo and many others. Uptempo rhythms, stinging synths and fiery call-and-response vocals, with subjects ranging from the frivolous ("Body Wave", "It's Cold Outside") to the more serious ("Speedtrap", "Abandoned Baby").
