Just before house: The Jets – Rocket 2 U

It was 1988, Chicago House was booming in Chicago and New York, European DJ’s were returning from Ibiza with balearic and XTC and the UK was celebrating the Summer Of Love.

However, there was still a lot of great freestyle/funk/disco influenced music being made that was a less radical departure from the music of the time and was almost, but not quite like, house.

I remember hearing this on the weekly all-imports radioshow “The Soulshow” in Holland. Awesome bass.
