In 1995, Clubzone released this tune. A Eurodance song with still House elements in it and that’s quite late too but it works really well. This tune is a fantastic one for all that are down and wants to get a mental rehabilitation. It is that good. Eurodance House is spectacular since it contains quite good rapping I think.
Important Eurodance group that formed many dance artists
The man behind Clubzone is a genius within electronic dance music. Hewas Mike Koglin who had been working closely with Logic Records since his first release dating back to 1988. Being a fanatic house dance music keyboardist and programmer, he moved from Germany to London in 1990 to pursue his professional career as producer and remixer. Since then his programming and remixing credits included names like The Shamen, Lena Fiagbe, The Sugarcubes, Bass Bumpers, and Alison Limerick.
Clubzone is a team effort with late rapper Richy Lyte (whose work with the KLF and N-Trance needed no introduction). Nat Brown lent her vocal talents to Clubzone’s Hands Up, after having completed an extensive world tour with Felix the previous year.
Hands Up were their very first song and as the title suggested. It is a truly uplifting Euro House track with additional club mixes and a special Alex Party remix. After successfully being launched on Ibiza 12th of December 1994. The summer of 1994 would never be the same for many. In the summer of 1994, it went Top 40 in the United Kingdom and charted #1 place at Hitmakers and #3 place at Billboard in the U.S.
Passion Of The Night hit the Streets in 1995
In 1995, the pop/dance duo Clubzone hit again the chart ceiling with their new club thriller single Passion Of The Night on Logic Records. Nat was replaced by the gifted vocalist Beverli Skeete, whose credits include background vocals for David Bowie, Carleen Anderson, and Chaka Khan, as well as a current project with Tears For Fears. Ricky Lyte co-wrote Passion Of The Night with Mike Koglin, Clubzone’s producer.
Passion Of The Night is a heat-driven, decadent, organ-rooted anthem that filled you up with contagious uplifting energy and hearty vibes!
Included on the 12 vinyl and CD-5 are three mixes whose sounds vary from European Hi-NRG in the Original and New mixes, to a fundamental house in the Beverly Does the UK Club Mix. Also included on the single, for nostalgic pleasures, is a bonus 1995 remix of Hands Up.
Eventually, this tune became ready for the streets and clubs on the 6th of November 1995. Passion Of The Night was destined to be a hot commodity this season! In addition, a hi-energy video shot in the United Kingdom has been created to complement the vigor of Skeete’s powerful voice and the overall intensity of Passion Of The Night. Mike Koglin released his first solo single entitled On The Way. 2 years later, he released The Silence in 2000, a techno cover of Depeche Mode track.
Clubzone will always stay in our hearts.
