REWIND: Duke - 'So In Love With You' (Full Intention 7" Mix)

Time once again to rewind back exactly 20 years ago for more of the wonderful music that entered the charts this week in 1996. If you weren't around or were too young to remember the mid 90s, consider this a lesson of enlightenment. If you (like me) were lucky enough to experience it all first time around, then these posts make a fine nostalgic blast from the blast. 

The UK singles chart from 20 years ago this week (20 - 26 October 1996) featured a varied mixture of the great and not so great. We'll focus only on the great ones. See the full chart rundown from that week HERE

I knew absolutely nothing about Duke, except for that he released this brilliant single in 1996. It went to number 22 in the UK singles chart exactly 20 years ago this week. Again, it's another one I used to play a lot during my days as a very young club DJ when I used to take to the decks at a club in Corsham that my dad used to manage in the mid 90s. While the original version of 'So In Love With You' has more of a funk twist, this red hot deep house remix by Full Intention is the one that has the impact. Singer, songwriter and producer Duke was born Mark Carson Adams and hailed from Newcastle. After being a member of punk band Catch 22 and the frontman of One Hand One Heart, he released one album 'The Ten Commandments Of Love' in 1995, and brought out eight singles, plus two compilation albums. He has also written and recorded with the legendary Bobby Womack. Full Intention are an English house music duo made up of Michael Gray and Jon Pearn. They are prolific remixers and have released many records under various different aliases.
