Neneh Cherry – Buffalo Stance (Extended Mix) [1988]

Played to fuck for years for good reason. A pure snapshot of the gestation of UK Hiphop at the time, embracing more synthetic sounds vs straight up sampling of the US culture. Sure, its a huge mainstream hit and who’s surprised with a voice like Neneh’s. Production is nailed by Bomb The Bass’ Tim Simenon and much like most of Simenon’s productions, has a riff you’ll remember until the day you die. This extended mix has the supreme ending with only the chorus, synth strings and breaks. Superb.

From Discogs
In 1988, Cherry recorded the international hit single “Buffalo Stance” Her debut Raw Like Sushi”s eclectic blend of hip-hop rhythms and pop melodies earned Cherry excellent reviews and sizeable sales figures. In 1990, Cherry contributed to the AIDS-charity collection, Red Hot And Blue, singing Cole Porter’s “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, but was quiet again until the release of Homebrew in 1992. Cherry reasserted herself as a commercial force in 1994 with the international hit single “Seven Seconds”, which saw her collaborating with Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour.
