Tune Of The Day: Fake Love By Club Asylum
Club Asylum is the name of UK garage musician Jeremy Sylvester. They were originally a duo which consisted of Sylvester and Paul Emanuel. After the duo decided to go their separate ways, Sylvester continued to produce and remix under the Club Asylum moniker as a solo artist, and is still active to the present day.
The duo scored their first chart entry in 1998 with "Freek Me Up", a bootleg vinyl release of the Jodeci song "Freek'n You", which reached No. 92 on the UK Singles Chart. This sparked interest from major labels such as Universal/EMI, Virgin, PolyGram and Strictly Rhythm. Their UK garage remixes of songs would prove popular in the scene, with official garage re-releases charting in the UK, including K-Ci & JoJo's "Tell Me It's Real" charting at No. 16 on the official singles chart and No. 4 on the UK Dance Chart and Kristine Blond's "Love Shy" at No. 28 and No. 3 on the dance chart.
Club Asylum have remixed notable songs including Another Level's "Freak Me", All Saints' "Bootie Call", Lutricia McNeal's "Someone Loves You Honey", Barbara Tucker's "Everybody Dance" (all from 1998) and Ginuwine's "What's So Different?" (1999).
