Dance-Pop purists Robert Clivilles and David Cole formed the C + C Music
Factory in the early 1990s with rapper Freedom Williams and vocalists Zelma
Davis and Martha Wash. They quickly made dance music history with three hit
singles that combined elements of House, rock and hip-hop: "Gonna Make You
Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," "Things That Make You Go Hmmmm..." and "Here
We Go" (all from debut album, Gonna Make You Sweat). 1994's follow-up
album, Anything Goes! garnered only lukewarm praise. The production
team dissolved when David Cole succumbed to spinal meningitis in 1995.
