INFO > Scottish songstress Mary Kiani first found fame in the early-1990s as the voice of rave group The Time Frequency. After going solo in 1994, Kiani racked up several UK hit singles, no doubt helped by Mercury’s seemingly unlimited budget for remixes. Annoyingly, both the Qattara and Eddy Fingers mixes are faded early on the CD single of “100%” to comply with UK chart rules.

INFO > Prolific Italian producer Gianfranco Bortolotti founded Media Records in 1986; the label served as the home for numerous Italo-house acts of the late-1980s and 1990s, including: 49ers, Clock, Club House, East Side Beat, R.A.F., and Fargetta. Dating back to 1987, Cappella is among Bortolotti’s most successful projects. The group’s big hit “U Got 2 Know” features a vocal sample from Ralphi Rosario’s “You Used To Hold Me”, and the tune’s synth riff is based on the intro to “Happy House” by Siouxsie & The Banshees.
