Club House was an Italian house music studio group composed of Gianfranco Bortolotti, Carl Fanini, Hidalgo Serra, and Silvio Pozzoli.

Musical career[edit]

They climbed to number 75 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1983, with a mashup medley of Steely Dan's "Do It Again" and Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean". In 1991, they hit number-one on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with "Deep In My Heart",[1] which used portions of Kier Kirby's vocals from Deee-Lite's 1990 single "Power of Love."

The same two songs in Club House's 1983 medley were also recorded as a note-for-note dance medley by the Detroit, Michigan band, Slingshot, which hit number-one on the dance chart with its cover versions.[citation needed]. There was a further version by Brooklyn Express, a New York studio project by Began Cekic and Eric Durham, also in 1983

Club House was also well known for the dance single "Light My Fire" (featuring Carl) which peaked at number 7 in the UK Singles Chart in April 1994.[2] Their follow-up single, "Living In The Sunshine", was not quite so successful as it only managed number 21 in the UK in July the same year.[2]
