      When this first came out it realy fell between two stools.Too corny for the Hip Hop heads,and not funky enough for the house lovers and honestly the customers who frequented my local import shop laughed at it.When the shop shut i bought from the sale bin because i secretly liked it,felt sorry for it and listened to it in secret as a guilty pleasure.As the long years have passed this poor little tune poor little tune has been rehabilitated and has a bit off a real collectors piece.It still is corny but i think it's a great bit of fun,love it.

        I can't believe nobody has commented on this record. This is a Chicago classic, and a totally overlooked moment in dance music history from the pioneer of house music Jesse Saunders. Originally the alias of Vince Lawrence who used the Z Factor name to put out "(I like to do it in) Fast Cars" also on Mitchball, Jesse used the name to release this classic (his own prodcution) back in 1985.

        Whereas his other releases from that era were straight up house (i.e. "Fantasy", "Funk U Up", "On & On) this is acid electro with vocal touches. The essential mix is the Jazzy mix which gets rid of the singing, and just leaves the synths, 303 and beats - totally amazing! Jesse should get more credit has an innovator of the acid sound.

        The label says "The Remix of the Remix, the original is actually on the ultra, ultra rare Z Factor LP! Absolutely essential!!
