Soul II Soul: Voice of the B Jive

Push, Melody Maker, 16 June 1990

JAZZIE B HAS ALREADY BEEN CREDITED WITH CHANGING THE FACE OF DANCE MUSIC IN THE LATE-EIGHTIES. SINCE THE RELEASE OF CLUB CLASSICS VOL 1 LAST YEAR, HE'S COLLECTED A BASKETFUL OF AWARDS FROM ALMOST EVERY MUSIC BODY IN THE WORLD, EXCEPT THE BRITS. NOW SOUL II SOUL'S NEW ALBUM, VOLUME II, 1990: A NEW DECADE HAS GONE STRAIGHT TO NUMBER ONE. PUSH TALKS TO JAZZIE ABOUT SUCCESS, PERFECTIONISM, OPTIMISM, THE RECORDING OF THE LP AND THE BUSINESS OF RUNNING THE SOUL II SOUL FAMILY.
