Classics: Joey Negro feat. Taka Boom – Can’t Get High Without U (Philly World Mix) (Subliminal)
‘Can’t Get High Without U’ is something which many producers obviously came to think about Taka Boom.
The younger sister of Chaka Khan and Mark Stevens of the Aurra fame, Boom is a true example of versatility. Responsible for the firing ‘Night Dancin” single back in 1979 on Ariola, she has sung background vocals on several albums by the likes of Parliament in the 70’s. Meanwhile, one might also remember her for her contribution as a member of Norman Whiftield‘s band The Undisputed Truth.
The end of the 90’s would see her teamin’ with British Disco/House Don Joey Negro. Thus givin’ birth to classics such as ‘Must Be The Music’ and ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ among others. Not to mention the burnin’ hot filtered ‘Can’t Get High Without U’, brilliantly incorporating parts of The Brothers‘ 1976 ‘Make Love’. And eventually finding a home Stateside on Erick Morillo‘s Subliminal label in 1998.
Last but not least, we’d like to give a special mention to the Philly World Mix which pretty much stands above the rest…
