Re-edit king Fabiolous Barker turns his attention to a Gil Scott-Heron classic, though you'd probably guessed that already! A dancefloor cert thanks to that much-sampled intro ("Now the first thing I wanna say is, mandate my ass"), the Mandate My Mix is a very light-touch and respectful rework, and as such is mostly notable for how relevant the early 80s lyric is to America's current political climate. The Mandate My Dub, meanwhile, strips out most of that vocal and lets Robert Gordon's sleaze-tastic slap bassline shine through in all its glory. The original's still very playable, but these new rubs offer a viable alternative.
