The duo of DJ Joma and German vocalist Moon Aton, collectively known as, Lenz are joined, at least in words, by the multi-award winning poet and activist, Maya Angelou for the latest release on Colour & Pitch.

It seems fitting that the last release of the year by the label should be on a high (no pun, etc) as the original version was first heard on November's Colour & Pitch Sessions 
with founder, Sumsuch (available on Mixcloud.

And yes, those are the lyrics!

That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

The instrumental is not so strong but it's proper dreamy on the beach with those baleraic synth waves rolling gently on the shore.

And the mix that brings is all together in a dark basement is the Hamburg mix. Can't say I'm up to date with the Hamburg scene but this has moved from the gentle shoreline to the where the dockyards meets the red lights.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise

Not sure what the cover is representing (being trapped/restricted buy a hooped fishing net thing?) but as a highlight of 2022, they will rise.
