Soul II Soul were one of the most innovative dance/R&B outfits of the '80s, creating a seductive, deep groove that borrowed from Philly soul, disco, reggae, and '80s hip-hop.
Originally featuring Jazzie B., producer/arranger Nellee Hooper and instrumentalist Philip "Daddae" Harvey, the musical collective broke through to great acclaim with 'Fairplay' and 'Feel Free'. Featuring the vocals of Caron Wheeler, the group’s third single, 'Keep on Movin'', reached the U.K. Top Ten in March of 1989, with their follow up, 'Back to Life' also storming the charts. Subsequently Soul II Soul released their debut album, Club Classics Vol. 1, an LP that quickly reached double platinum on both sides of the Atlantic, with their follow up, 1990 – A New Decade debuting at number 1 in the UK!
