This Beat Is Mine! Frankie Knuckles presents Directors Cut feat. Sybil – Let Yourself Go (Joey Negro Club Mix) (Nocturnal Groove)
No matter what, there’s (almost) nothing like feeling deep inside you can let yourself go. Nothing of an evidence though, but at the basis of a strong relationship whatever it is. From friendship to love and also business even though it takes quite a while to achieve such a situation.
And I suppose it applies to almost everything in life. From your next door shopkeeper who’ll get you exactly to get what you’re lookin’ for. To the artist who’ll touch your heart and soul with his performance. Meanwhile, all in all progressively establishing a trust-based relationship with you. And as a result, givin’ you the feeling you can let yourself go whatever they may be doin’.
Therefore, I suppose this is how each of us builds up his/her reputation as to being reliable or not. And, once again, it takes time to achieve such a situation. Just the way it does for each of us to establish a following and eventually a loyal fan base whatever we may be doin’. And it’s most definitely not Frankie Knuckles who would have said the contrary. No more than Sybil or Joey Negro (in charge of the remixing duties) after so many years spent in dedicating themselves to please us with quality vibes…
As for this (Directors) cut, no doubt as to how you can let yourself go!

A Patterson, NJ native, Sybil Anita Lynch came to prominence in the second half of the 80’s. Opening her account with the deep and groovy ‘Falling In Love’ back in 1986, she delivered her debut-album – ‘Let Yourself Go’ – the year after along with producer James Bratton. It didn’t generate the expected following though. This despite the presence of its firing title cut. A track which the late Frankie Knuckles would eventually revamp 27 years later under his Directors Cut signature with an infectious remix courtesy of Joey Negro.
Not that surprisingly, Sybil would nevertheless make some noise with her cover version of Dionne Warwick‘s ‘Don’t Make Me Over’. With the same applying to her rendition of ‘Walk On By’ from her eponymous album in 1989. Meanwhile her ‘Sybilization’ album went unnoticed the following year. As so would more or less do her following efforts until 1997 and her last album release.
A definitive talent though, Sybil would definitiely have deserved to be submitted more efficient material. She nevertheless delivered a couple of extra gems worth the check. Such as the memorable ‘When I Fall In Love’ with The Klub Family (Josh Milan, Kevin Hedge and Tee Alford) back in 1998. A cut Blaze eventually revamped 2 years later on UK label Slip’N’Slide…
