Career[edit]

In the mid-1990s, Love to Infinity regularly performed at the Hacienda Club, notching up twelve appearances in one year around the time of their first Top 40 hit, "Keep Love Together" (1995). Starting with Melanie Williams, who had a hit with Sub Sub, "Ain't No Love (Ain't No Use)", the duo took her first solo track "All Cried Out" and turned it into a disco/salsoul revival. This early success led to another collaboration, "Not Enough", which became a firm favorite of Junior Vasquez at the Sound Factory, New York City, and also topped the DMC Club Chart. The first production released however, was the single "Saviour" on Big Life Records in 1993, featuring singer Louise Bailey. This was followed by "Somethin' Outta Nothin'" on the underground imprint Pigeon Pie.

They also later operated under the pseudonyms M*A*S*H, Soda Club (featuring singer Ashley Jade) and Urban North. They produced Aretha Franklin's "A Rose is Still a Rose", and the track went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in the US and top the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Love to Infinity's productions for other artists include Jennifer Holliday, Judy Cheeks, Rozalla, Atomic Kitten, Speedway, Dannii Minogue, Matthew Marsden and Destiny's Child.
