An underrated genius. Saw him performing live at the age of 62 and he still has *it*. One of the all time greats of music, let alone any specific genre like boogie.

Since his first recordings with Black Ivory, recording with the legendary Patrick Adams, James Calloway, Sonny T. Davenport & Greg Carmichael to name but a few, producing pioneering electro with the aleem brothers & literally hundreds of songs written & produced for other well known & not so well known artists, Leroy Burgess with that almighty voice & devistating vocal deliverence goes down in history as one of the very very special ones.
Another artist where if you have one you have to have them all.

This guy has made immeasurable contributions to dance music for the past 3 decades and beyond. Blessed with the sweetest male vocal in house music, a pioneering spirit and an ear for a great tune, this guy must be considered one of the founding fathers of house. To this day, he continues to make quality contrbutions - for example his vocal work on Cassius's Au Rêve release. Respect is due!
