Keep On Movin'

Keep On Movin' by Soul II Soul
Released: Jun 1989
Label: Virgin
Is there an act that better exemplifies black British music from the late '80s than Soul II Soul? Jazzie B., Nellee Hooper, Simon Law and their collaborators -- particularly the singer Caron Wheeler -- drew from Chicago house, New Jack swing, dub and the nascent British acid-house culture to produce a hybrid sound that swept through clubs on both sides of the Atlantic. "Keep on Movin'" and "Back to Life" are their debut LP's incontrovertible classics, equal parts dance and R&B, while cuts like "Dance" and "African Dance" offer the hidden link between New York garage, dub poetry and U.K. rave.
