All hail brand new label MIC (Music Inspires Change), launching with five never-before-heard jams from cult 80s fusionist and groove buccaneer Mike Collins, the jazz funk pro magician who was responsible for a number of iconic hits in the 80s. Behind-the-scenes he was also flexing serious synth muscles, setting the foundation for the house explosion that happened by the end of the decade. From the b-boy finesse of "Phat Back Beats" to the jazzier wriggles and flare of "Halfway House" by way of the cosmic bossa of "Latino Beats", each track was way ahead of its time and continues to have resonance to this day.
