Reissue! When African Head Charge released their fourth album 'Off The Beaten Track' in 1986 the sampler was a new toy; the use of it here is so fresh and progressive that the resulting album still sounds modern and innovative today. When it was released, it sounded like nothing else around at the time. The combination of fat beats, dub, psychedelia and ethnic chants was to provide the template which many lesser lights attempted to emulate over the ensuing years. 'Off The Beaten Track' is both a seminal recording in the use of sound-bite technology and an excellent example of the integration of live instrumentation and programmed music.
