1982 – The group is led by its songwriter-musician Michael Cleveland , and it was known for employing a strong disco-esque bass line and early hip hop lyrics backed by two female singers: Réjane Magloire and Rose Marie Ramsey.
“Last Night a D.J. Saved My Life” was released on Sound of New York/Becket Records (SNY-5102) in 1982 and peaked in early 1983, reaching the top 10 in the US R&B and #2 in the US Club as well as the Top 15 in UK, and was certified for Gold-level sales in France. The follow-up single, “When Boys Talk,” did not do nearly as well on either side of the Atlantic, which, combined with its limited later success, put the group into the one-hit wonders category. Vocalist Magloire later enjoyed some success with the Belgian techno-house outfit Technotronic. “Last Night a DJ Saved My Life” was later covered by Mariah Carey on her 2001 album Glitter, and it reached #25 in Spain.
