    Beautiful track! The 'Original Classic Mix' has a perfect arrangement, great lyrics, and that bouncy sax is just bliss.

        In hindsight one can not underestimate how much of an impact Ultra Naté (and let’s not forget Baltimore's very best, i.e. The Basement Boys which was the magnificent production team behind the “ultra”-gifted singer) had on New York’s underground dance music scene when Tony Humphries first introduced her “It's over now" at the Zanzibar Club in Newark, New Jersey.

        I still think of “It’s over now” as perhaps the quintessential game-changer for New York’s House music at the time.

        Funny anecdote: When they initially entered the club stages, Ultra Naté as well as Jay Steinhour, Teddy Douglas and Thomas Davis (the three founding members of The Basement Boys) were thought of to be out of New Jersey but certainly not Maryland because of their strong ties to the newly emerging Garage-House scene in the Garden state. Not really of great importance, but it shows you nevertheless how rich the dance music environment throughout the east coast actually was.

        Anyway and in case you have not been there, the Big Apple was in full crisis mode in the late 1980s - think of A.I.D.S., the crack epidemic, sky-rocketing crime rates or the stock market crash in October 1987 and you get an idea what New York was like back then. It was of course not all doom and gloom. But the overall socio-economic climate was clearly not a nourishing one for a driving night club scene to say the least.

        But why am I telling you this?

        Well, it was because of a much needed creativity infusion out of New Jersey (and Baltimore of course 😉) that New York was able to pull itself out of a major night-life slump during that time.

        Thanks to the musical energy booster from Ultra Naté, The Basement Boys, Abigail Adams and her Movin' Records, Tony Humphries, Hippie Torrales, Smack, Blaze, Kerri Chandler or the super nice, highly talented guys from Backroom Productions - I could go on with this list - new independent record labels in Manhattan such as Strictly Rhythm, Nu Groove Records, Nervous Records, Big Beat or Emotive Records e.g. found a fresh pool of talented singers, musicians and producers from across the tunnels and bridges that helped them to flourish in the early 1990s eventually.

        So, there you have it: Ultra Naté - It's Over Now is musically speaking and IMHO a record of historic significance (at least for the greater New York region) and it is by the way still a fantastic piece of raw Garage-House sung by one of the most accomplished, wonderful vocalists this genre has ever brought us 😊👍.

        ☝️Last but not least I must mention Brad Branson the photographer who shot and created the stunningly cool image of Ultra Naté for her "It's over now" single. He died suddenly in 2012 at only 49 years of age and left behind an incredible wealth of photographs documenting the arts and fashion scene of the 80s and 90s.
