LINE-UP

Baby D

Baby D is a seminal UK dance pop act who has had some huge crossover hits that still resonate to this day. The earliest singles came in the early nineties between 1991 and 1994 and started out as massive tracks on the dance music underground. Before long though, they broke free from the clubs and into the mainstream, making it into the Top 100 of the commercial charts. But bigger things were to come with the release of the immediately recognisable ‘Let Me Be Your Fantasy’, which was put out on the influential Production House label in 1992 and stayed in the Top 200 of the charts for no fewer than two whole years. In that time the single picked up more than 40,000 sales and as such it made sense that London Records re-signed the track in 1994 and put it out once more.

The second time round, the punchy beats and emotive vocals of the song helped take it to number 3 in the UK charts before it finally climbed into the number one position. It remained there for two whole weeks and sold an eye watering half a million copies in all. Plenty of great follow ups came in the form of 1995’s version of the Korgis’ ” Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime” (which itself climbed to number 3 in the charts after being re-named ‘I Need You Lovin’.) Another follow up came in ‘So Pure’ and again this hit number 3 in the charts.
