Armand Van Helden, "The Funk Phenomena"
I didn’t think this would be a big record. It was third song on a three-song EP, and it blew up in UK first then jumped over to California and later Miami. It never caught on in New York – I think it was too different from that Masters at Work New York sound of the moment. I was actually in Amsterdam on tour, and I got to the hotel room and put on a music video countdown while I unpacked – and it was Number One! I couldn’t believe it – I didn’t even know it had a video. And I hated the video! It was just, like, a woman undressing, the most cliché dance video.
