Formed in 1984, Miami based Exposé (originally X-Posed) was the brainchild of dance music producer Lewis A. Martineé.

Don’t we all want a grandfather like Kerri Chandler’s Granddad. I don’t know about you but to make one of the finest 90’s Deep House records with a seasoned old jazz musician sounds like the dream. First release on New Jersey Garage Music Label, Movin’ records, Calvin C. Reed Sr. lent his voice to Chandler’s record in 1993. Little knowing it would become the classic it is today for an untold generations of dancers. Stunning house record and if you don’t have one in your collection, I’d try and scour the world wide web before it becomes rarer than ornamental ivory tusks. R.I.P You wonderful man....
