Various Artists Joey Negro-In The Beginning
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: ZR
House music lover, know your history! If you already do, the name Joey Negro (or Dave Lee, Raven Maize and half a dozen other monikers) will ring bells as one of the most influential producers of disco house. Here, he gathers together his hit remixes and productions (many of which were pop chart toppers) from 1988-1992 into a double disc collection of unbelievably smooth and deep tracks. Many, like Umosia's blissful "Unity" or his own "Do It, Believe It," are guaranteed to induce Ecstasy flashbacks in some of us old-timers, but anyone can appreciate the glossy, if somewhat predictable production that typifies Negro's classic sound.
