Originally released in 1996, ”Impolite to Refuse” immediately inspired the future members of ICAN. It had that Detroit Techno soul with latinized bass and percussion; even before Knights of The Jaguar, Claude Young’s masterpiece had won us over. Also included on this release are two new versions of ”Impolite to Refuse”. Esteban Adame and Santiago Salazar did their homework to recreate the strings, bass and then added their own inspired twists for the ICAN Remake. Esteban Adame slows it down to 118 bpm for a latin funk jam on his Deep Mix.
