Stone cold 1982 NYC Boogie here from the mighty SAM Records catalogue!
You cannot go wrong with this supreme cut from this short-lived group. "Hold On" was their first release and boasted the studio and mixing prowess of 2 of the most legendary figures in early 80's dance music - John "Jellybean" Benitez and Daryl Payne, both of whom were behind numerous club hits of the time and rightfully deserve a mention when talking about this particular influential era of music. "Jellybean" was the resident DJ at the infamous Funhouse in NYC and he went on to work with major artists including Deodato, Talking Heads, Madonna, The Pointer Sisters and many many more. Daryl Payne also turned in a serious amount of music and was behind such underground dance anthems as Sharon Redd's "Beat The Street", NV's "It's Alright", Elektrik Funk's "On A Journey" and a host of others! You know on this particular release the quality control is of the highest standard!
If you're into that sparse, electronic and funky early 80's Boogie / electro Disco sound then you won't be disappointed with this one. A guaranteed floor-filler of the highest calibre! Reissued in conjunction with SAM records, New York City. Fully remastered with all original 1981 label artwork intact. File under - *Essential Disco*
