‘Salsoul Nugget (If You Wanna)’, 2001

A seemingly faceless group with a knack for a club hit, M&S/The Girl Next Door were well aware of their club-music lineage when they gave this song the title ‘Salsoul Nugget’. Salsoul is one of the most collectable 1970s disco/dance labels of all time, and an inspiration to similar labels since. Mostly now to be found on Ibiza compilations, the song was a hit, and then its creators disappeared from mainstream ears. The song contains samples of Double Exposure’s ‘Everyman’, and Loleatta Holloway’s ‘Hit & Run’.
