released on STRAIT UP was RIZE & TARKEE`s debut single “Let Yourself Be Yourself/Called to Add Mind”. This was a gem also and solidified the fact that Australians could hook up beats just like anyone else. Two years later they released another single on S.U., but this time they came with a name change. They were now to be known as MAMAS FUNKSTIKOOLS. And boy did they drop a cool slab onvinyl. “Funstikools Theory/Not Just Funks Theory/Rozettas Got A Friend”. In 1993 New York label TOMMY BOY included “Funstikools Theory” on their “Planet Rap” compilation. – Blaze
