Raze

Profile:
Spearheaded by New York multi-instrumentalist Vaughan Mason, Raze was formed in 1986 as a studio/concept group were the idea was to have a different lead singer on each song. Mason hooked up with soul singer Keith Thompson in the studio for "Break 4 Love", considered by many to be one of the best house songs ever recorded.
It was the group's only song that made it to urban radio, debuting on October 22, 1988 at #24 for 16 weeks.
Mason would move to D.C., setting up his Grove Street Records studio.

Break 4 Love is one of the all time best House songs and its distinct style went on to influence a generation of productions. Keith Thompson's sultry delivery illustrating that you don't have to belt it out to be soulful. The group may not be around anymore but thankfully, atleast Thompson still is.
