Phoenix: I Wanna Know (CDM) (Global i Entertainment, 1999)

 
The last and final artist to be posted from Bury, Greater Manchester label Global i Records and a feisty mix of raga and contemporary R&B music. Featuring label mate JR on backing vocals, the original version appeared on one of the rarer Streets Beats Volumes from Series 2 (Vol. 11) and despite not being the hugest fan of raga I found I actually quite enjoyed this tune. The title of the track is actually “Good Love” but for some reason has been changed to “I Wanna Know” on the CD release the following year. The main remix is on the brink of being quite a decent R&B track while the b-side track “Who Do You Love” features Fyza Salah on vocals. Seemingly the last and final thing from this label which was active between 1998-2000. Many thanks again to my UK contributor Lewsic who owns and brought an original copy.
