This Beat Is Mine! Phase II – Reachin’ (Brotherhood Mix) (Movin’Records)
I suppose I have to give my props to Joey Negro and his label back then – Republic Records – for havin’ gotten me into Phase II‘s ‘Reachin’ and a bunch of other jams.
As a matter of fact, I was on Discogs the other day when I came to discover his ‘The Garage Sound Of Deepest New York’. To be honest, I initially thought it had something to do with NYC’s The Paradise Garage. Then going further, I discovered it had more to do with The Zanzibar and Tony Humphries. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m a newbie. And what I discovered really blew my ears. As a matter of fact, I didn’t know House Music could have been so Deep and intensely Soulful.
This ‘Reachin’ track happens to be so uplifting. Discovering it saw the light on Movin’ Records, I then checked their entire catalogue. And here again, my ears went crazy. Please forgive my late enthusiasm, but I couldn’t help expressing it. With warm thanks for sharing my feelings.
