Soul II Soul – Back To Life (However You Want Me) (10 Records)

Soul II Soul - Back To Life (However You Want Me)

Initially a sound system, Soul II Soul, a collective made of Jazzie B OBE, Nellee Hooper and Philip Daddae Harvey, managed to so to say redraw an already way too sophisticated R&B production back at the end of the 80’s, with a unique harmonic and somehow minimalized blend of deep vibes inherited from Philadelphia Soul, Disco, Reggae and Hip-Hop.
Cleverly enough, they would recruit some of the most beautiful voices around. Ie. Rose Windross, Chicago House diva Kym Mazelle and Caron Wheeler, scoring with the latter two of their biggest classics under the form of ‘Keep On Movin” and the aforementioned.
She would soon after leave them though to embark on a solo career, herself delivering gems such as ‘Livin’ In The Light’, ‘I Adore You’ on the ‘Mo’ Money’ OST, ‘UK Blak’ and ‘Blue’ (Is The Color Of Pain)’.
