Deee-Lite fused elements of funk, soul and hip-hop with the emerging sounds of the acid house movement to produce an inspired, multi-cultural debut.
A collage of knowledgeably selected samples, guest appearances and hook-laden songwriting, the record produced hit singles – most notably Groove Is In The Heart, which remains a cornerstone of any respectable Saturday night out today – and dropped the band’s colourful, hallucinogenic imagery on a scene hungry for dancefloor fillers and musical cross-pollination.
Remixes formed a huge part of that clubland culture, and this set also includes fourteen choice, varied takes on both singles and album tracks. From extended radio versions to deep house and funky breaks, disc two provides a fabulous snapshot of global nightlife in the early 1990s.
Originally released in 2010, this is the first re-issue of Bomb The Bass' No.18 debut album, “Into The Dragon”. The album is a successful blend of breakbeats, samples and scratching, first witnessed on their debut and from nowhere single ‘Beat Dis’ that reached No.2 in the UK singles charts.

One Way released in 1981 the grossly overlooked and far underrated album Love Is. The album contains smooth vocal harmonies and sweet soul rhythms. The Detroit group brought the album into the Billboard R&B Top 20 in March 1981, their highest spot. The title track Love is …is a mid tempo urban soul track. But One Way meanders from this sleepy and sweet title track to the more emotive "My Lady," which captures an easy, breezy style reminiscent of the Chi-Lites. The latter was rewarded with moderate chart success, while the lighthearted dance groove "Push" shot to number 12 R&B. Elsewhere, "I Didn't Mean to Break Your Heart" finds the band sampling some funk ethics, only to swing 'round a little later on with some classic blues guitar picking and bass thumping on "Wait Until Tomorrow." It's an eclectic, if at times somewhat too smooth, brew, but One Way is so obviously enthralled with their sonic journey that it's hard to criticize. Oddly, despite such cool grooves and their consistent presence in the R&B chart for over a decade, One Way remained inexplicably on the fringes, a fate that is ultimately to the benefit of the soul aficionado, as the band is transformed into a precious, secret jewel, a nifty little nugget for those in the know.

One Way was an American R&B/Funk band that was very popular in the late 1970s and throughout most of the 1980s. One Way was formed in 1979 in Detroit, Michigan as the newer incarnation of a band originally known as Soul Partners. The original members were Al Hudson, Alicia Myers, guitarists Dave Roberson and Cortez Harris, bassist Kevin McCord, drummer Gregory Green and keyboardist Jonathan Meadows. They first recorded as "Al Hudson and the Partners", scoring an R&B hit on the ABC label called "You Can Do It" in 1979.. At that time, however, ABC Records was in the process of being taken over by MCA Records as part of a buyout, and when the band moved to the MCA label, they subsequently changed their name to One Way featuring Al Hudson before becoming One Way. Their First release on MCA was the selftitled album One Way featuring Al Hudson and they had a minor hit in 1979 with the song “Music”. They stayed on MCA from 1980 to 1988 and scored five Top 10 U.S.R&B chart hits, with the biggest being "Cutie Pie," which reached number four in 1982.
