Beschreibung

Soundway Records reissues Free Youth's long sought-after 1985 single "We Can Move", their only release - fully restored, remastered and available for the first time on digital and 12" vinyl. "We Can Move" is the first known iteration of Ghanaian hip hop, emerging at the dawn of 'hip-life' (hip hop meets highlife).
Free Youth comprised three main members: Terry "Sir Robot" Bright, Lenny "Nii Addy" Dimple, and Abednego "King Abed" Ayim Bright. In the early 80s they began performing in clubs and parties across Accra, with friends and other dancers occasionally joining them on stage - including Reggie Rockstone, who later went on to find commercial success.
In 1985, the band were approached by a producer and invited to record at a local studio. Without having written down any music, Terry, Lenny and Abed sang the parts and beatboxed the rhythms to the session musicians prior to recording. Out of this session came "We Can Move", a blend of hip-hop and Afro-funk with a proto disco-boogie beat, punchy trumpet riffs and melodic rapping.
Included in the Soundway reissue is an exclusive instrumental cover version of "We Can Move" from Welsh ensemble Drymbago. This replaces the original B side track "Freedom Video Centre", which was an advertising jingle for a business associated with their former producer. Soundway Records is pleased to deliver Free Youth the release that they were after, 34 years later.
