GODMOTHERS OF POP

Born and raised in Queens, New York, Robin S shot to fame in 1993 with Show Me Love, a stripped-down but thumping dance track that defined the sound of Diva House. The song drew little attention on its first release in 1990 but took on a new life when it was remixed by fledgling Swedish DJ Sten Hallstrom, under his soon-to-be famous stage name StoneBridge. Initially issued on a 12” white label, Show Me Love took off in the clubs and quickly crossed over to the mainstream, reaching No.5 on the US Hot 100 and No.6 on the UK singles charts, leading Robin S to make her worldwide TV debut on Top of the Pops. The follow-up, Luv 4 Luv was another global smash that reached No.11 in the UK and paved the way for a brace of albums, Show Me Love in 1993 and From Now On in 1997. Multiple reissues of Show Me Love, have since seen the track embraced by new generations of clubbers. This July, Robin S celebrated the hit’s 25th anniversary by appearing with a full orchestra at the Symphonic Sounds of Back to Basics festival in Leeds.

About Classic Pop

In the latest issue of Classic Pop, our cover star is the mighty Rick Astley. We have an exclusive in-depth chat with the singer as he returns with new record Beautiful Life – the pressure's on as he attempts to follow up his hit album 50. Synth-pop icons Heaven 17 look back on their superb LP The Luxury Gap and the legends keep on coming this month as The Human League talk us through their back catalogue, album by album. For ABBA fans, we go behind the scenes with Carl Magnus Palm for the inside track on their career in the recording studio and also serve up a buyer's guide to Sweden's finest. We travel Down Under to speak to Dannii Minogue as she relives her Neon Nights album 15 years on – it's the record that transformed her into a bona fide dancefloor icon. Massive Attack's imperious Blue Lines is our Classic Album this issue and we also meet Jennifer Warnes to talk about her brand new studio LP as well as her Oscar-winning songs that soundtracked the 80s. Our packed reviews section features new albums from All Saints, Gorillaz, The Proclaimers, Rick Astley and Gabrielle and many more while the reissues take in a superb Soft Cell boxset, Depeche Mode 12" singles, Morrissey and Jean-Michel Jarre. On the gig front, we're bowled over by an astonishing David Byrne live show, travel to the Isle of Wight Festival to see Depeche Mode and check out two legends, George Benson and Quincy Jones.
