Strictly’s early releases were a mixed bag, some the result of a quickly abandoned strategy to go for radio playlists – at the end of the ‘80s New York radio was getting behind commercial house in a big way. But the success of ‘The Warning’, a solid underground groove featuring a spoken word vocal without any kind of obvious hook (the hook was in the infectious string riff) signalled a sea change in Strictly’s modus operandi. Thousands of DJs and clubheads across the world gave their clear indication that this was the kind of house music they wanted. And their advice was duly noted.
