Michael Wycoff – Looking Up To You

Probably most known as the hook sampled in Zhane’s breakthrough 1993 R&B smash hit “Hey Mr. DJ”, it’s only in recent years that it has been recognised as being from Michael Wycoff’s 1982 sleeper hit “Looking Up To You”. Taken from his second album Love Conquers All, Wycoff’s short lived solo career sadly hit a dead end shortly after and he apparently went through tough times. That is until getting back on his feet via a new found faith and these days he is a Minister of Music at several Los Angeles area churches. “Looking Up To You” is a timeless soul classic featuring his signature vocal style, a lush string section, an even tighter brass section and powerhouse backing vocal team: you just don’t get music like this anymore! B side cut “Diamond Real” (Tee Scott instrumental mix) is a more upbeat boogie number, with P-funk style elements plus neon-lit synths and disco guitar licks – wouldn’t have been out of place on the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack actually!
