Farley “Jackmaster” Funk released a record that changed the world. “Love Can’t Turn Around”—a record that still hums with life, vibrancy, excitement and sheer fucking incandescent joy—was a version of his roommate and house pioneer Steve “Silk” Hurley’s “I Can’t Turn Around” which was a bang-the-box cover of an Isaac Hayes song. FJF had hooked up with larger-than-life vocalist Daryl Pandy and the pair of them took on Hurley’s minimal, twisting semi-original and turned it into a glossy dancefloor smash. “Love Can’t Turn Around” was huge. FJF and Pandy even visited the BBC studios after the record hit #10 in the UK charts. For millions of people, this was their first taste of something new, something special, something that’d shape the sound of clubbing till this day and made House Music a household name.
