Soulful classic from Mass Order, way back in 1991. Utilising Loleatta Holloway’s vocals from “Love Sensation” and combining the duo’s great vocal talent with a cracking Garage tinted house beat, Lift Every Voice was huge. Played to death by DJ’s on both sides of the pond, it evokes a great summer feeling.
Mass Order was a House Music duo from Maryland, whose members were Eugene Hanes and Marc Valentine. They released one album, Maybe One Day, in 1992. Their single Lift Every Voice (Take Me Away), was a soulful song that was instrumental for the sub-genre of Garage House, which was made popular in the late 80s and early 90s by House Music DJ Tony Humphries and features samples of soul diva Loleatta Holloway on this record as did black box on ride on time too the “take me away” bit .
