This Beat Is Mine! (*) Tongue N Cheek – Tomorrow (Frankie’s Favourite Paradise Mix) (Syncopate)
I’d like to first and foremost thank you for your 10 essential Brit-Soul gems recent publication. I therefore fully subscribe to your affirmation saying there was nothing more exciting musically speaking than the UK scene back at the end of the 80’s. We then would get things almost every single day from almost everywhere at the time. Be it House, Soul, Hip-Hop, Acid-Jazz or whatever. We also had the clubs, we had the DJ’s, we had the record shops and we had such an exciting media coverage. In other words, we had everything!
Tongue N Cheek, although they released only one album, remain definitely worth the check. Maureen Mason, the lead singer, had such a beautiful voice. Meanwhile her partners, Robin Achampong and Delroy Murray made quite some noise earlier on under their Total Contrast guise. I’m pretty sure you remember them, huh?
This song of theirs, which Frankie Knuckles remixed is so uplifting. I wish we would have more ‘Tomorrow’ like this!
