'If It's Love' is a joyous celebration of a soulful house sound that came to prominence in the 90s, where vocals were the heart and soul of a record and the vibe was unashamedly positive. But more than being simply an homage, If It's Love combines the heady, feel-good vibe of those classic records with production values of the present, delivering a timeless record that will more than hold its own on the sonically rich dancefloors of 2020.
Mark Knight's musical history is entrenched is soul and hip-hop. Growing up in the late 80's and early 90's, every evening was spent by the radio listening the shows of Froggy, Greg Edwards and a very young Pete Tong - either taping music or writing titles down from the likes of The BB&Q and Leroy Burgess through to the mind- blowing productions of DJ Eddie F.
It was then through the education and vision of DJs like Paul Trouble Anderson, Bobby & Steve and Tony Humphries that Mark started to make the connection from the Swing Beat craze at the time, towards the Soulful House sound that was coming through - and thus a love affair began that has remained with him throughout his career.
