Bedroom DJs and working DJs love to hate on Junior Vasquez and his success. Well this is where his long road to success really started. This is one of his first productions that became a big NYC House anthem. It's ahead-of-its-time and very much in tune with the times, "back in the day"; The Paradise Garage had just closed a year previous, Chicago House was ruling the club charts and inspiring a wave of English style House and Acid, and this formula of sampling a famous disco diva's voice over a repetitious, non-commercial production would become a blueprint that's used to this very day. On top of that, this was one of Junior's first "Sound Factory signature songs". He played it for the first time publicly on the very first night that Sound Factory was open. And Sound Factory was a club that Junior and his friends and investors created from the ground up. How many DJ's have successfully created their own mega-club and underground party from scratch? Hatin' DJ's: check *yourselves* out!

Loletta Holloway sample, driven past the point of no return - it builds and builds and when the tension release comes it is just blinding. Very Rave.
