Originally released in 1984, identical-twin-brother duo Aleem’s Release Yourself gets a timely repress. This is an early electro masterpiece that goes a long way in showing what subsequent trends have inherited (vocal sample re-pitch, reverence for drum machines, etc.) and what, for better or for worse, they’ve largely discarded (infectious, funky positivity). They don’t make it like this anymore. Comes with free titular advice to any artists struggling for label deals.
