By the late 1980s, Imagination were famous all over the world, having released a series of gold albums, embarked on a series of sell-out tours and having even appeared on Soul Train with soul legend Marvin Gaye.
Thanks to their groundbreaking proto-house album 'Night Dubbing' they are now considered extremely influential and important in the evolution of dance music.
It all started when they were invited to perform at the legendary Paradise Garage, New York. The first ever English band to appear there, they gave the Garage crowd the full gold, sequined and satin Cleopatra disco dub experience and blew the place apart.
Larry Levan asked if he could remix one of their tracks and they all decided on 'Changes'. On first listen to his version, the band and record label decided an entire album project should be created using the same approach, using synthesisers and drum machines aimed at a dancefloor. 'Night Dubbing' was born.
Fast forward, it's 30 years later, 2012 and Imagination co-founder, drummer, songwriter & singer Errol Kennedy meets producer & Ism Records label boss DJ Yam Who? in London & have lovingly re-created the album using the same studio techniques, synthesisers, drums and hypnotic grooves for the modern dancefloor.
