Sasha’s UK Top 20 hit “Be As One” features the lilting vocals of Maria Nayler. Brilliant B-side “Heart Of Imagination” is a collaboration with Brian Transeau; unfortunately, the track is savagely edited on the CD single.

“Take Me Higher” was the first of four singles issued from Diana Ross’ 1995 album of the same name. A multitude of mixes was produced for each side of the Atlantic; Brits got the better of the lot, receiving epic revisions from T-Empo, Brian Transeau, and Felix Da Housecat. This rare CD-R is the only digital source for the full-length UK remixes (heavily edited versions of some tracks appear on the commercial CD of follow-up single, “I’m Gone”).

The following year, “Take Me Higher” resurfaced as a promo release with new reworks by Nush and Reverend Jefferson, along with unreleased dubs by Blaze and Joe Claussell.
