E IS FOR ESPIRITU (PT4)

Last post on Espiritu. Having tried House and Euro Disco, this time it’s Big Beat and DnB.

 

Espiritu were signed by Heavenly in 1992. Initially a collaboration between Vanessa Quinones and Chris Taplin (ex-Frazier Chorus), it evolved into a solo vehicle for Quinones in collaboration with others. From 1995, Espiritu was just Quinones. 1997’s “Baby I Wanna Live” had Big Beatish sounding mixes from Richard Fearless and Jon Carter; whilst “You Don’t Get Me” (also 1997) flirted with DnB. A voice in search of a sound.
