Don Laka, short for Donald Laka, is a South African jazz and funk musician. He was a very influential musician in the 80's and 90's, working with the likes of Sipho Mabuse, Brenda Fassie, and Sankomota. In 1986 he released a four track EP, Stages of love. The track "Stages", an upbeat, synth-driven disco song, has never been released like this before.

Here you have the original song, wonderfully pressed on a whole side. The flip contains a delicious Prins Thomas edit, almost nine minutes of high octane South African discoboogie. Both sides are remastered, giving the song the whole sonically register. The original 4 tracker is almost impossible to find, but here you get the full original version plus the tasty Prins Thomas edit, in a beautiful cover reinterpreted from the original 1986 cover.
