From Underground to Overground as people become curious about this late 80’s dance sound. Released in ’88 by Maurice Joshua who did a bit of a Guy Called Gerald by bursting on the scene with this classic. Originally the B-side of his debut single “”I Gotta Big Dick” (???) it was remixed by London DJ , Les Adams (from DMC) given it Worldwide success the following year. The “Sharon & Tracy” mix is the more commercial sounding, whilst the “Kevin & Trevor” mix was a the harder, more clubby style with more of the typical House sounds thrown in, Todd Terry-ish. (Sexism and remix’s heh?)
I think a prefer the “Deep Dub” with its bird tweets and 808 State vibe.
Acid-Lite or Deep House ?
