Originally presented on UR’s Happy Records sublabel in 1992, and subsequently kept in press via other labels, ‘Don’t You Want It’ is a class example of UR head Mad Mike, who used to play keys on Motown recordings, sustaining the city’s soulful sound in the derelict decades after Motown jumped ship to sunny California.  

Making use of Motown’s abundant talent that was effectively collateral damage in this major industry shift, he supplies the deeply soulful tug of Davina’s vocal with a suitably optimistic backdrop of burning organ refrain, bleep techno riffs and sizzling 909 groove sealed with those signature string arrangements.
