I do like putting up some pioneering Dance stuff from the late 80’s. This was from 1988 and features the soulful voice of Steven Dante who featured as guest vocalists on Jellybean’s track “The Real Thing”.
The sound of Commercial New Jack Swing is there on the track “It Makes You Feel Good” mixed by Brian Malouf, think Janet Jackson.
Of far more interest is the 2 “Acid” Remixes of previous singles “Imagination” and “I’m Too Scared” The first mix by Clivillés & Cole is surprisingly the least commercial. The Acid squelches and overdubs over an electro backing with no vocals, very Adamski-like.
“I’m Too Scared” by Danny D (D-Mob) has a really Deep (and wonky) bass and sits over the top of the lighter backing. Some vocals remain but it’s proper old skool banger.
