A Spanish hip hop heater (yeah, SPANISH), the primitive tang of the keys, that 808 electro funk and that Furious Five flow, its a banger alright and a sure fire dancefloor delight for your record bag.

Diving once more into the forgotten corners of the electric Spanish music
scene from the 80's and early 90's, Soundway reissue Scan Man's full
single "Arabian"

Bringing together a Furious Five retro styled bounce & rhyme and a bite of UK
street soul, the track is taken from 2021's hugely popular compilation Ritmo

Expect soulful American expat rap layered over sitar-like sounds, and a tumbling,
rattling, 808 pattern. Along with the original track and instrumental, DJs Trujillo
and Ray Mang serve a souped up instrumental primed for modern dancefloors.

Recorded at the CEV Studios in Madrid, Arabian was the first composition and
production of Marcos Manzanares to get an official release. Using an Ensoniq
Mirage Sampler (one of the early, affordable synth samplers), and with Stephen
Sutton providing the vocals for the track, he first made his entry into the Spanish
music scene. A short while later he would go onto make a career for himself
under the name of Tension808, releasing with major labels like Sony Music and
EMI Chrysalis.
