It took a while to make it over to the States, getting a release a year after in 1989. Dancin’ Danny D (real name Daniel Kwadwo Addai Poku) produced a critical track with rapper mate Gary Haisman (R.I.P.) and caused tabloid-fuelled moral panic over acid house in the UK
Repetitive as hell, the “Matey” mixes were the more polished of all the versions, additional samplers -(Get Right On One Matey)
The instrumental has some nice dub effects, very trippy (probably as intended) and because of the lack of vocals it doesn’t date it.
“Trance Dance” is more musical and House-orientated, a cheesy vocal from Danny D and some girlie backing vocals. (Sampled from Nona Hendryx – “Why Should I Cry?”) Showing his versatility as he would have a few more hits after this.
