Listen

Keni Burke°«s signature hit °∆Risin°« To The Top°« gets an official remastered, reissue alongside the 12 inch mix of his °«81 killer jam °∆You°«re The Best°«. °∆Risin°« To The Top°« quickly became a clear favourite of the soul crowd back in the °∆80s, with Keni°«s sensuous vocals, a timeless bassline of epic proportions and those dreamy, sunshine chords proving a winning combination. Since then countless producers, from the likes of Doug E Fresh and Slum Village, to LL Cool J and Mary J Blige, have utilised °∆Risin°« To The Top°« as a choice sample for their own productions. A quick glance at this seemingly endless list, just goes to show how much of an impact this record ended up having. On the flip, °∆You°«re The Best°«, takes a more boogie paved path, filled with an undeniably groove laden bass synth, cosmic keys and Keni°«s infectiously soulful vocals. It°«s early eighties synth boogie at it°«s best, placing the electronic elements at the forefront whilst holding onto that unquestionable funk at its core. Two Keni Burke classics for soul heads, sample spotters and anyone with a keen ear for a gem.
