Led by producer/vocalist/songwriter DJ Jazzie B., Soul II Soul was one of the most innovative dance/R&B outfits of the late '80s, creating a seductive, deep R&B that borrowed from Philly soul, disco, reggae, and '80s hip-hop. Originally featuring [a=Jazzie B.], producer/arranger [a=Nellee Hooper] and instrumentalist Philip [a=Daddae Harvey], the musical collective came together in the late '80s. Two singles, "Fairplay" and "Feel Free", began to attract attention both in clubs and in the press.

Featuring the vocals of [a=Caron Wheeler], Soul II Soul's third single "Keep on Movin'", reached the U.K. Top Ten in March of 1989. Released in the summer of 1989, "Back to Life" also featured Wheeler and became another Top Ten hit. Soul II Soul released their debut album, Club Classics, Vol. One, shortly afterward.

Wheeler left the group before the recording of the group's second album, Vol. 2: 1990 — A New Decade. The album debuted at number one in the U.K., yet it caught the group in a holding pattern. Hooper soon left the collective, leaving Jazzie B. to soldier on alone. Hooper went on to work with several of the most influential and popular acts of the early '90s, including [a=Massive Attack], [a=Björk], [a=Madonna] and [a=U2].
