U IS FOR UNITY

Some early house/breakbeat from 1992 mixed by the Future Sound of London.

Unity was released on Union City Recordings. According to Wiki: Union City Recordings was an electronic music record label set up by Circa records in 1991/2 from their operations in West London. The label was managed by Rob Manly and specialised in deep house music which was popular in clubs at the time. The label’s catalogue ran to 29 releases across the various formats of the time (12″ vinyl singles, CD singles and one compilation album, Colours). The label is best remembered for releases by RuPaul and Sasha’s first single, “Appolonia” (under the name “B.M. EX”). Other artists to record for the label include Manic, Sure is Pure and TC. The first releases had sleeves designed by Union Design of Shoreditch, but were later replaced by non-branded white label bags which were intended to increase popularity with DJs and specialist record stores like Black Market.

Unity was Paul Phillip Witts and UCR label boss Robert Vincent Manley. They had this solitary release from 1992, with a remix version on which the A side was remixed by the Bassheads and the B side by the Future Sound of London. The FSOL mixes are all pretty straight up house/breakbeat mixes.
