Sunfire is probably the least heralded and hardest to come by project of Reggie Lucas, former Miles Davis band member and production partner of percussionist Mtume, whom he met whilst they both played for Davis. his best known work probably being Madonna's 1983 debut album. Both these tracks were taken from Sunfire's self titled and only album. There is a 12" of Shake Your Body out there (somewhere) which is well worth tracking down. I love the beautiful synth work on the album, its like a perfect balance between newer electronic sounds that were coming in and more traditional funk live sound that was already well established.

Reggie Lucas founded Quantum studios in New Jersey, which now famously is used for all the big selling lovely new jersey scene screamo core punk emo goth whatever that comes out of that part of the world, and teaches at the music department in Montclair University. (source - the internets)
