      absolutely killer 12" - as the reviewer below mentions this bears a lot of similarity to Bass Tone - just as banging, but I have to say i prefer these joints. the vocal mix in particular is relentlessly uplifting with lem springsteen's excellent vocal delivery working in tandem with those wonderful sustained keys working their way through the mix. a real dream team here with the guys behind mood ii swing & louie vega jamming away. a record every house deejay should own!

        While I have always admired the Masters at Work production team one can't all but mention the equally talented Strictly Rhythm marketing brains behind many of their hits. One of the prime examples of this is Hardrive - Deep Inside Hardrive “Deep Inside”, an anthem in its own right, but was really just the set up teaser dub version to hype Barbara Tucker - Beautiful People. You can only wonder if the latter would have been ultimately or nearly as huge had the songs hook not come out a full year earlier as “Deep Inside”. I’m pretty sure the timing of both releases had just as much to do with the New Music Seminar (NYC) and Winter Music Conference (Miami) in their heydays, though I would have only known this as a casual music fan and not participant till many years later. I mainly reference this because the same concept was used to varying impact the following year with Sole Fusion - Bass Tone setting the stage for Curious, though with more underground success.
        Also makes me think of a lost or maybe bygone time in music where a good dj might tease the crowd early in the night with the dub/instrumental of a familiar song then just when the timing was right they'd finaly mix in the vocal or main mix with a resounding result. But how many regular working djs in this day and age get to play a full night 5+ hours to even still need to do this.
