1990 Circa Records Ltd (UK)

INFO > After producing a couple of singles as Electra for FFRR, Paul Oakenfold, Steve Osborne, and Rob Davis hopped over to Virgin and enlisted established reggae/soul vocalist Carroll Thompson for a new recording project. Movement 98 was a response to the then-burgeoning rave scene; Oakey sought to buoy the Balearic sound by creating a musical movement built on a downtempo of 98 BPM (hence the group’s name). With a nod to Erik Satie, “Joy And Heartbreak” was the first of two singles released by the outfit, and features mixes by Smith & Mighty.
