Distant Tomorrows (The DAZ-I-KUE PURE BLAKBOT Edit)
Daz-I-Kue, DJ Donne & Kenyatta Scott (The Blakbot Project) do it again. This is a bona-fide dance music trip from start to finish. This hot track is the virtual baby of Lonnie Liston Smith and Kraftwerk, hot and cold.. then hot again, all at the same time! Carla Prather sets it all the way off with her smooth, soulful vocals.
