"Hailing from New York during the mid 1970s, Tony Aiken and Future 2000 was a musical group whose funky brand of R&B-meets-dance featured a distinct sound reminiscent of a combination of Carribbean music and Afrobeat. Their strong arrangements, pulsating beats, and unique orchestrations made them underground darlings for much of the mid-'70s. Their Kimsha Records release Unity: Sing It, Shout It was a joyous, booty-shaking pile of East Coast disco at its most raw. Aiken has since gone on to work with artists such as Dennis Brown, Frankie Paul, Chosen Few, and many more, but the original Unity album has largely been forgotten to the sands of history... until now. Boom Shot Records is proud to present this sterling CD reissue of the original Unity album, with additional bonus tracks. Features hard-hitting funk tracks like 'Better Days,' and soulful cuts like 'Time Tunnel,' with bouncing bass-lines and sinuous keyboards. Unity's crown jewel however is its' title track, a nine-plus minute stomper with hints of reggae and tastes of early-disco vibes. Unity's previously unavailable bonus tracks also showcase the band's Carribbean roots, with tracks like 'Jah Music' and 'Skanking on the A-Train,' which contain the air of traditional ska, rocksteady, and reggae. An obscure gem, and a classic for any fan of fine Afro-centric music."
