Classic House from 1997 - FHacienda Vocal Fave - If it is not in your collection, it should be- Inc Orig Club & Dub & New Ilija Rudman Mix

Arnold Jarvis' 'Take Some Time Out' was first released in 1987, the year that Fourth Floor Records was born, and it stands the test of time as a seminal release for the label. The track perfectly characterises the stand out productions that keep the house music world returning again and again to its catalogue for inspiration.This official vinyl re-issue includes the Club and Dub that made up the original release, plus a 'Reconstruction Mix' by Ilija Rudman. Ilija delighted Classic Music Company earlier this year with his minimal take on disco in track 'In Her Eyes'. His approach to the 'Take Some Time Out' re-work has the same deconstructed vibe; the loose percussion and punchy melodic bass gives a pleasing spaciousness to the track, giving the record fresh life and re-imagining it for 2016.

Last FM Information on Arnold Jarvis

Throughout his career, Arnold Jarvis has been nothing but consistent - consistent when it comes to getting noticed. His is a brilliant career that began at the prime of his youth. While only a teenager, his voice and talent landed him front and center of the Baltimore Gospel Choir for whom he was a prodigious soloist. In 1984, modest academic pursuits led him to New York City. However, his talent and love of music did not lie dormant for long. He was drawn to music industry circles and was quickly embraced by them. He began to write, perform and record. Among the more notable gems from this early period in his career are his collaboration with Fonda Rae on “You’re The Best,” a song written by Lem Springsteen (Mood II Swing) and produced by Kerri Chandler; and his debut single, “Take Some Time Out” (Fourth Floor Records) produced by Tommy Musto and Yvonne Turner, which enjoyed huge underground and global success. In the 90s, he made it known that he meant business and showed audiences everywhere that he was a force to be reckoned with. First came his guest appearance on Satoshi Tomiie’s “And I Loved You” (FFRR, Polygram UK), produced by Grammy winner, Frankie Knuckles. Then followed the monumental classic, “Inspiration” (Freetown Records), produced by Kerri Chandler. He reached a new pinnacle and gained notoriety when he recorded Swing 52’s epic songs, “Color of My skin” (FFRR/Cutting Records) and “The Joy You Bring” (Cutting Records), which he co-wrote. At around this time, he began touring the world and has since performed alongside the likes of Queen Latifah, Kenny Bobien, Barbara Tucker, Ultra Nate, Ce Ce Peniston, Loletta Holloway, Jocelyn Brown, and Byron Stingly, to name a few. The 21st century has seen increased impetus and creative output from Arnold. In fact, he’s outdone himself and his already impressive legacy many times over. In 2000 alone, he released “Learn to Give” (Hysteria Records) produced by Eric Kupper; “Life Goes On” (MAW Records), the brainchild of his collaboration with legendary DJ/producer Louie Vega and vocalist Lisa Fischer; and “Special Kind of Love” (King Street Records) produced by Benji Candelario and remixed by Jazz and Groove. He then released his debut full-length album, Arnold Jarvis, “The Collection” (MFL Records), in 2002 and followed it with a string of extraordinary singles, including: “Love Of My Life” (West End Records) produced by the Basement Boys; “You’ve Let Love Slip Away” (King Street Records) which reached the top 5 on Billboard’s Dance Sales chart; “Make The Time” which was written and produced by Blaze for Keep Hope Alive, a benefit CD for LIFE BEAT; and “Take Good Care Of Me” (Sole Channel Music).
