Classic, classy tune. Particularly the Remix. Been getting into this again after a very long hiatus. Sampled (by Toddy Terry to name just the one, plus a fair few of his contemporaries) and imitated by many but never bettered, in my opinion. There might be one or two early House records which closely rival it, but that's pushing it. Unique for its day. Not that easy to define. Proper '80s club tune big at most '80s funk based clubs in London and the South East. Key-Matic - Breakin' In Space also has a very similar bassline. Which one came out first? I can't remember. I do remember some Hip Hop DJs would occasionally play it in amongst the Electro stuff of the day. Both tunes featured on the funk circuit. Club goers were a little bit cliquey. Pirate radio based DJs were more open-minded and relaxed at the time, so pretty much anything went.

From my point of view 'You don't know' was an early (and probably the first) example of what House music stands up today, transforming an average Disco track into a classic piece of funked up garage house. Great vocals, pumping bass, groovy vibes, weird keys, all of which have become the N.Y.-House trademark.
