Nothing but fond memories wearing out my Deep Heat 10 tape caning this in the car. The track has a great groove, cracking break and some wonderful vocals from Pamela Frazier. Doug Lazy brings the prerequisite male mc’ing but hey, dont hold it against him 🙂
Spearheaded by New York multi-instrumentalist Vaughan Mason, Raze was formed in 1986 as a studio/concept group were the idea was to have a different lead singer on each song. Mason hooked up with soul singer Keith Thompson in the studio for “Break 4 Love”, considered by many to be one of the best house songs ever recorded. And Thompson was only 25 years old when they recorded it in 1987! It was the group’s only song that made it to urban radio, debuting on October 22, 1988 at #24 for 16 weeks. Mason would move to D.C., setting up his Grove Street Records studio.
