This Beat Is Mine! (*) C+C Music Factory – Share That Beat Of Love (Columbia)
We most likely remember C+C Music Factory for their in yer face firing remixes and productions where they would blend elements of Disco and eventually Hip-Hop over some early House beats. In other words tracks such as ‘Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)’ or ‘Here We Go’. Not to mention ‘Things That Make You Go Hmmmm’. But what about the mellower side of their repertoire???
It pretty much looks like their label – Columbia – passed on it. And probably because of the reasons I’ve explained earlier on. As a result, the classy and vibrant ‘Share That Beat Of Love’ didn’t even get a 7 inch release at the time. Although in the caliber of gems by the likes of Zhané such as ‘Sending My Love’. Going further on, they didn’t officially credit guest singer Audrey Wheeler although she delivered one of her best performances ever.
What a mess at the end, as ‘Share That Beat Of Love’ is such a beautiful song. With thanks to Rod Temperton who co-wrote it. Embedding a subtle wink to Alicia Myers‘ classic ‘I Want To Thank You’.
Justice would be partly paid to it though. With Andy Davies‘ Street Soul Records releasing it as a single back in 2011. This, under the form of a Limited edition radio mix 7″ as regrooved by Neil Thompson.
