AllMusic Review by

Darko is a major name in B├╝rger-highlife, the hi-tek Afro-German offshoot of the Ghanaian version. He also studied under Konimo, which gives him a better grasp of the roots than many his age. And he now lives mostly in Ghana, which keeps him in touch. The result (despite a couple of dim English lyrics) is an intriguing highlife sub-genre with more solidity and heft than most expat styles can muster.
