I was saddened earlier this week by the news that DJ E-Z Rock (Rodney Bryce) had been found dead, aged just 46. Along with Rob Base he recorded this 1988 hip hop smash hit. It Takes Two sampled Lyn Collins' Think (About It) for it's catchy as anything chorus and has a massive drum track. It's almost as much dance music as hip hop, a proper party record. This was followed by equally sad news personally- a former football teammate of mine died of cancer last week, aged just 47. RIP E-Z Rock. RIP Derek Rowe.
