Originally released on Effective Records, the 12-inch single contained the original, instrumental version (The Naked Mix) along with Darren Emerson's remix (his first remix). The 1992 release was a notable success in underground dance clubs, and had some success in UK Singles Chart (no.29). 'Passion' is one of the first songs to be referred to as 'progressive house'. Nick Warren has described the single as one of the first to create a distinctive British house sound.

Passion (Of Your Passion) first appeared on the Logic Records release in 1992 and was also featured on the Flying Records, On The Beat and Buzz releases. Juana Volkers provided the vocals.

In 1994, DJ Mervyn Victor (who worked at Paul For Music) released Gat Decor vs. Degrees Of Motion - Degrees Of Passion. This was originally a live bootleg he created using the acapella of Degrees Of Motion 'Do You Want It Right Now?' over the Naked Mix of 'Passion'.

Due to the huge popularity of the 'Degrees Of Passion' bootleg, the track was re-vocalised by Beverley Skeete and re-released in 1996 on Way Of Life as 'Passion' (Do You Want It Right Now Mix).

Some astronomical prices for this at the moment, I'm someone who collects old SKOOL but I dont have this, because i think this song is very very BORING maybe that's why people feel the need to jazz it up with an acapella.

Fantastic tune and the ultimate blend of house, trance, Italian style piano and early underground hardcore. Heard it in many clubs back in the day but playing totally different styles of music.

A bit of an underwhelming issue of the 1992 classic. It's great to have both the Original and Grant Nelson mixes together, but the other versions are fairly forgettable. The vocals are off-key in the Do You Want It Right Now Edit, despite the production itself being brought up by a semitone, and the vocal performance itself pales in comparison to Biti's on the Degrees Of Motion original.

I would personally trade out the Vocal Edit, Mr Roy, and Junior Vasquez mixes for Darren Emerson's Edit and the Passion Of Your Passion versions. If you're willing to spend a little more, I recommend seeking out the original 1992 singles, as they have a more refined collection of tracks.
