A DJ Saved My Life.

The Soul Closet kicks shut this week in typical fashion: with a dance music video. Today we bring Indeep's 1982 landmark jam "Last Night a DJ Saved my Life." Indeep was composed of female singers Reggie and Rose Marie Ramsey, with producer Mike Cleveland supplying the male rap.

The song's bassline, hook and title have sampled and borrowed by an array of R&B/Hip Hop acts, including Mariah Carey and Busta Rhymes. But here is the original. And after almost 30 years, it still sounds good.
