DJ Spinna & Kai Alce Are Back With The "Foundations" Classic House 45 Series!
Strictly Limited Pressing!

After a two year hiatus, DJ Spinna and Kai Alce return to BBE Music with the 5th installment of their 7" vinyl series 'Foundations', this time showcasing Ralphi Rosario & Xaviera Gold's undisputed club classic, "You Used To Hold Me".

The youngest member chosen for Chicago's 'Hot Mix 5' on WBMX back in 1981, Ralphi Rosario is nothing less than House Music royalty, and the 1987 smash "You Used To Hold Me" is surely his most enduring hit. Featuring fellow WBMX DJ and vocalist Xaviera Gold, the song has seen several cover versions, remixes and reissues over the years, but has surprisingly never before appeared on '45. Spinna and Alce have chosen to create special edits of the '87 'Riviera' version and the '(You Used To Beat Me Black and Blue) Bonus Beats' for this double-sided slice of dance music history.

"This is the blueprint to vocal House music and how it should be delivered," says Kai Alce, "and to have the opportunity to present it on 7" for the first time with Ralphi's blessing is overwhelmingly gratifying!"

"'You Used To Hold Me' seems like one of those anthemic jams that you pretty much heard everywhere - it was massive," recalls DJ Spinna. "I remember hearing it at the Paradise Garage in 1987, but it may have already been a hit on NY radio by that time. It's one of those classic vocal tracks that impacted the House world as hard as Ten City 'Devotion' and 'Move Your Body' by Marshall Jefferson. The Bonus Beats on the 12" was a great tool for the DJ. You often heard it used in blends with other tracks."

About The Series: BBE Music is excited to present 'Foundations', a series of strictly limited 7" pressings exploring some of the most iconic House tracks of all time, as chosen by DJ Spinna and Kai Alce. With global interest in '45s on the rise, 'Foundations' aims to fill those frustrating gaps in all our collections by releasing specially crafted edits of classic house tracks on 7" vinyl for the very first time.
