As members of Steve “Silk” Hurley’s ID Productions (the writing, production and remix team), Chantay Savage and Maurice Joshua had already started building careers behind the scenes by the time they came together on Chantay’s first commercial release, “I Gotta Hold On U.”
Maurice had already taken the industry by storm with his number-one Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart hit "This Is Acid (A New Dance Craze)." Hurley had history with Mo and looked at him as a “little brother.” Seeing his potential, he really wanted him to become a member of ID Productions. At the time, Hurley was in high demand as a remixer, so this gave him the opportunity to showcase Maurice and Eric “E-Smoove” Miller on his projects. This trio went on to form the industry’s hottest remix team in the early 90’s. Maurice went on to become a GRAMMY® winning remixer and all three of them continue to write, produce and remix at a high level today.
Chantay Savage, the daughter of a jazz musician, R&B vocalist, became a member of the ID crew, and her vocal prowess was obvious. But what most didn’t know was that she was a prolific writer as well. She teamed up with E-Smoove and Jere McAllister to write and sing the “We Got A Love Thang" demo for consideration on CeCe Peniston’s album. CeCe loved the song, and with Hurley’s production and arrangement, the rest became history. When ID inked a distribution deal with RCA Records (and Sony UK), Chantay became their first artist released under the ID/RCA imprint. Chantay’s collaborations with Hurley included the hits,”Betch’all Never Find” and I Will Survive," 2 tunes that not only reached top positions on Billboard’s Dance Charts, but the R&B Charts as well.This digitally remastered package is a re-release of the original 12” vinyl release, which was previously unavailable. It contains mixes by Maurice Joshua, E-Smoove, and Steve “Silk” Hurley.
