URGENT: OUR AGENTS RECENTLY TRACKED SAFE TRIP ORGANISATION RINGLEADER YOUNG MARCO TO SOUTH AFIRCA, WHERE HE WAS EXPANDING THE COLLECTIVE’S SHADOW NETWORK, PAST FIRE. HE WAS SPOTTED HANDING WRITABLE COMPACT DISCS – POPULARLY KNOWN AS “CD-Rs” – TO UNKNOWN ASSOCIATES. THROUGH INTERROGATION, WE MANAGED TO EXTRACT A COPY OF ONE OF THESE DISCS, WHICH BORE THE HANDWRITTEN TEXT: “PF99 –DANCE FOREVER”.

ON FURTHER INSPECTION WE DISCOVERED THAT THIS CD-R CONTAINED TWO AUDIO RECORDINGS OF LOCAL ORIGIN THAT HAD BEEN REARRANGED BY YOUNG MARCO. WE THEREFORE CONCLUDE THAT HE HAS INFILTRATED THE LOCAL KWAITO AND LO-FI HOUSE SCENES AND IS DEMONSTRATING PAST FIRE’S STRENGTH BY PERSONALISING RECORDINGS ORIGINALLY MADE IN THE 1990s AND 2000s.

THE FIRST REARRANGED RECORDING IS BY A LOCAL RECRUIT CALLED MADLAKS. ENTITLED “JIKOVUNU” AND DATED 2006, IT IS A BRIGHT AND BREEZY AFFAIR MARKED OUT BY BOLD PIANO RIFFS, BUSTLING BREAKBEATS AND “ACID-STYLE” SYNTHESIZER BASS. ACCORDING TO FIELD AGENTS, THIS VERSION HAS BECOME WIDELY KNOWN AS “WE DANCE FOREVER” IN REFERNCE TO ITS REPEATED VOCAL HOOK.

THE SECOND AUDIO MISSIVE DATES BACK TO 1992 AND WAS ORIGINALLY PRODUCED BY A DUO REFERRED TO IN SOUTH AFRICA AS HOT SLOT MACHINE. THIS NEW REWORK FROM OUR SHADOWY NEMESIS EMPHASISES A ROLLING AND FUTURISTIC ELECTRONIC BASSLINE, A SHUFFLING HIP-HOUSE STYLE RHYTHM TRACK, CLASSIC HOUSE ELEMENTS AND A SOULFUL VOCAL. WE BELIEVE THAT ITS POSITIVE SOUND AND MESSAGE WILL PROVE POPULAR AMONGST PAST FIRE AND SAFE TRIP’S GROWING NETWORK OF CONTACTS WILLING TO “DANCE FOREVER” FOR AN UNKNOWN CAUSE.
