In 1980, Randy Muller’s Skyy dropped the monumental Here’s To You, comfortably one of the greatest dance singles of all time. Released on Salsoul, Here’s To You is now exceptionally hard to find in its original form. On this special Be With double-header, they present the sought-after 12" mix and back it up with the strutting You Got Me Up, which has never been on a 12" before. Naturally, both are cut loud and bumping for devastating dance floor power. A sure-fire classic of the NYC club scene and a true block party rocker, Here’s To You beautifully combines sweeping synth-strings, loose cymbal hits and swaggering lyrics delivered with enviable style. But the real hero is *that* bassline. Oh, wait, no, actually, it’s *that* synth refrain halfway through. Harnessing the Oberheim Matrix 12 to emulate a horn section has provided goosebumps on discerning dance floors ever since. If that wasn’t enough, over on the B-side is You Got Me Up, a real hidden gem from Skyy’s Skyway LP. Also released in 1980, the track is a wonderful showcase of the group’s airtight rhythm section and Muller’s uncanny ear for a groove and a melody.
