Unknown Artist (Zulu Records) – Hold Me

To contrast the essential but very early track I posted by Leo Anibaldi yesterday, here’s a slick 94 jungle tune on a not-so-well known label. After years of digging for tunes, I’ve definitely grown to like labels like Zulu Records – labels that got in and got out with just a handful of releases to their name. Not just a single one-off, but also not 20+ releases where half of them are disposable.

On to the track itself: it features vocals as used in Cloud 9 “hold me in your arms” (though a smaller vocal sample than in that tune, where the 2nd vocal line resolves the melody of the first), and the Chuck’s Beats amen which is aka the Bizzy B amen, the Demons Theme Amen, or whatever else you want to call that wicked combo of “amen brother” and isaac hayes – “breakthrough” breakbeats. The main music is just 808 State “Pacific State” pitched way up… simple but effective.
If anyone happens to know who this tune is by, please leave a comment here.
