I read in some interview with Mr. C, can't remember the exact details, where he talked about his memories of doing the famous Clink Street RiP parties in Southwark, south London, back in 1988, and he was basically reminiscing about his memories of the club and hearing Master C & J - Dub Love pumping through the brickwork of the building as you walked up to the venue where the club was held. He said it was just so dark and raw and like nothing before it ever. God I would have loved to have experienced that time. I think even today this particular release on Trax is still pretty fucking raw stuff, all things considered. Not ofr the faint hearted at all.

Master C and J have many classic Chicago house tune and this one is somewhat different from their usual sound (or the typical sound of coming out of Chicago at that time) and it definitely works! "When You Hold Me" is indeed a signature song for the classic Hotmix 5 radio shows on WBMX. It is a very unusual track with a haunting lyrics, a definite precursor of the minimalist house genre.

Interestingly enough the track is actual an interpolation (same medley) as Farley "Jackmaster" Funk's song "Give Yourself To Me" (although I am unsure of which track came first).

NOTE: Master C and J often collaborated with Liz Torres.

"When You Hold Me" is a good song but the best song on this record is "Dub Love". Is has a hypnotic incessant buzzing noise and a sort of constant brass noise, with sexy breathy vocals. I still listen to it at least a few times a week.
