From ’88 and the real breakthrough for commercial Dance records, manufactured for the home as well as the club and trend that would continue to the next decade.
An unusual and complex beat pattern and it also uses what later became the “Rave” sound of the late 80’s and 90’s (sampled from “A Day In The LIfe” by Black Riot (Todd Terry). Gail “Sky” King does all the remixes, using her editing skills to nail the cut up lyrics, best heard on the “Sky Dub” – almost going into Freestyle territory. Mac Quayle adds some additional keyboards on that Jackson riff.
“Keep It Going” is a nice hidden gem, a tougher Hip Hop cut, old skool at its best.
