Rise Up

A 2 track caribbean single (14m 51s) — released May 21st 2012 on Names You Can Trust

Originally released by the infamous Wackies label on Tyrone Evans' 1983 LP, For Lovers Only, Rise Up was an exceptional and extraordinary inclusion amongst the album's otherwise Lovers Rock stylee. Noted for its uptempo funky stylings and atmospheric pace, this highly sought after track finally has its first well deserved single 10" pressing courtesy of an official license between Names You Can Trust & Wackies.

In true Names You Can Trust fashion, you get a combination of vintage and modern on this double-sided 10" disco single, as Greenwood Rhythm Coalition takes to the B-Side with a recording of their own unique version of Rise Up. Finding heavy inspiration in the original's cosmic groove, the crew naturally expands on it with a time-traveling, transcontinental journey from its birthplace in the Bronx, to Jamaica, West Africa, and back to the underground dances of NYC.
