Maika X releases a remake of UB40's 'One In Ten'.
The early eighties saw a wide acceptance for UB40's 'One In Ten'; a track out of their second album, 'Present Arms'. It is argued by fans and musical audiences to be the best of musical offerings of UB40. The track went so far as hitting Number 7 on the UK Singles Chart. A song weighted with social responsibility, it takes on a most dominant social issue of its day.
the live instrumental accompaniment ... leaves the song audibly interactive.
Maikal X's cover is equally as relevant, taking on social issues with an edge of pun. Among the many riches of Maikal X's are his easy-flowing rap lyrics and lively vocal performance that sorts of adorns the song in the robe of the era, complete with live instrumental accompaniment that leaves the song audibly interactive.
