The weight of keyboardist and synth pioneer Wally Badarou in contemporary music is outstanding. From the start of his career at the end of the 70’s he has been consistently busy working on his music and with others: Fela Kuti, Grace Jones, Marianne Faithfull, Mick Jagger, Herbie Hancock, Joe Cocker and Gwen Guthrie are just a few names from his endless list of collaborations. In addition to his production and keyboard work he has done several film scores, the most notably is “Kiss of the Spider Woman“. Badarou released his more dance oriented album in 1984: “Echoes”. It was recorded in Bahamas at (the now closed) Compass Point Studios, one of the best recording studio in the world. “Hi-Life” was the first single, remixed in this 12” version by Paul “Groucho” Smykle.
