Sir James

Strictly Rhythm

Released: 26/02/07

If you’re hard pressed to recall ‘Special’ as a Strictly classic, you’re probably not alone. But listen to it and not only will you know it in an instant, you’ll recognise every last line of one of the most sampled records in the history of house music. Representative of the poppier end of New York house at the time, as records like D Mob’s ‘C’mon And Get My Love’ took over the city’s airwaves, ‘Special’ was a little lost on first release, but it didn’t take long for people to spot the superbly performed vocal from James Roach and not much longer for them to start sampling the handily included acapella.
