Stereo MCs – Connected (1992)

“Connected” is the title track and first single from the British group Stereo MC’s third studio album. Released in September 1992, the song samples “Let Me (Let Me Be Your Lover)” by Jimmy “Bo” Horne. The music video was directed by Matthew Amos.

“Connected” peaked at number 18 on the UK Singles Chart. Internationally, it peaked within the top 10 of the charts in Austria, Sweden and Switzerland, and peaked within the top 20 of the charts in Belgium, Finland and the United States.

The song uses a bassline sampled from Jimmy “Bo” Horne’s song “Let Me (Let Me Be Your Lover)”. Vocalist Rob Birch told about how the song was made in an interview with Chaos Control: “We ended up taking the music several stages further than we had gone before and playing things ourselves on bass and keyboards, and getting other people in to play things like the horns.”
