Two sizzling South African boogie tracks from Kabasa's Tata Sibeko. A killer producer, arranger and bass wizard, Tata channels the gloomy current affairs landscape of 1985 into a glimmering Afro-synth nugget. Tata Sibeko dropped "It's A Mess" in 1985, addressing the world's Cold War climate with an appeal to "learn to love each other" and "save ourselves from catastrophe". The B-side "Afro Breakdance" marked the evolution of Tata's Afro-global sensibilities from "Afro Funkin'" that had appeared five years earlier on Kabasa's self-titled debut in 1980.
