Quick Overview

Repressed on clear vinyl. Limited to 1000 copies.

Saâda Bonaire, the fantastic disco/world music project from Bremen, Germany which was never meant to be. Formed by Bremen DJ Ralf Behrendt in 1982, Saâda Bonaire was a unique concept band cen- tered around two sultry female vocalists (Stefanie Lange and Claudia Hossfeld) and dozens of local musicians culled from the local immigration center.

Originally signed to EMI in 1982, their first and only single, “You Could Be More As You Are” was produced by legendary Matumbi, Slits and Pop Group producer Dennis Bovell in Kraftwerk’s studio in Cologne. The fusion of husky female vocals, Eastern in- struments, dub and African music aesthetics, drum computers and synthesizers remains unique to this day. EMI cancelled the project upon its release. Saâda Bonaire compiles two songs from the original EMI single plus 11 previously unreleased songs recorded between 1982 and 1985. Also included are never-before-published photos and in-depth inter- views with band members and a full gatefold cover for those dedicat- ed vinyl buyers. These lost recordings from the early 80s still sound fresh on today’s dance floor.
