A duo of Jean Phillippe Aviance and Victor Imbres from Washington, DC, USA, Alcatrazâ€™s debut single, â€˜Give Me Luvâ€™, was released on Deep Dishâ€™s Yoshitoshi label at the beginning of 1995. It was the duoâ€™s first collaboration, but slowly built journalistic and club support until at the end of 1995 a major dance label bidding war erupted. A&M Records eventually secured the rights to release the single at the beginning of 1996. A minimal, hard house track, it followed neatly in the tradition established by artists such as Josh Wink. The duo had first met when Imbres was engineering a remix of Deep Dishâ€™s â€˜Satoriâ€™ by Aviance. Though it was not envisaged as a permanent collaboration, the resultant exposure gained by â€˜Give Me Luvâ€™ on the London club scene encouraged them to work together on new material for A&M. They also remixed BTâ€™s â€˜Loving You Moreâ€™ UK hit.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
