Nervous US

For several months in the early 1990s, Nervous appeared to be more famous for its T-shirts than records. The label, set up by industry scion Mike Weiss, began by releasing mainly New York house, but swiftly moved into hip hop, too, hitting home with Black Moon whose breakthrough ‘Who Gat Da Props’ got into the Billboard Hot 100 (they’ve subsequently released material by Smiff N Wessun, EPMD and others). In the house arena, almost anyone who was anyone in the ’90s ether made records for Nervous or remixed them: Danny Tenaglia, David Morales, Masters At Work, and Mood II Swing. They released a string of stone-cold classics, from the moody vocal house of Kim English’s Mod II Swing-produced anthem ‘Learn To Luv’ to the genre-defying ‘The Nervous Track’ by Nuyorican Soul (aka Masters At Work). Also included in the catalogue here are some of the releases from Sam Records, the disco label run by Weiss’ father Sam, including John Davis & The Monster Orchestra and Gary’s Gang.
