Taana Gardner – Heartbeat (West End Records)

Is it because he got commissioned to remix it that he insisted along with time? Rather say no as he first and foremost happened to be among the very rare ones who could truly feel things, along with radio programmer Frankie Crocker who would support the song as well, from the following Monday on WBLS. Produced by Kenton Nix who arranged and wrote more than 120 songs, this nowadays classic stands as West End Records’s biggest commercial success, according to what the late Mel Cheren told me back in the day. As sampled back in 1994 by Jamaican Ragga singer Ini Kamoze on the memorable ‘Here Comes The Hotstepper’. With Love & best wishes to Taana Gardner who’s celebrating her Birthday this September 3…
