In the 1980s, DJ International Records released music by key house innovators such as Frankie Knuckles, Ron Hardy (his 1986 remix of the It’s track “Donnie”), Hot Mix 5 member Farley “Jackmaster” Funk (his 1986 track “Love Can’t Turn Around”), Steve “Silk” Hurley (his 1985 “Music Is The Key”), and Marshall Jefferson (his 1986 song “Move Your Body”). DJ International Records also released ESP’s song “It’s You”, Dymond’s “Wild About Your Love” and Liz Torres’ “What You Make Me Feel”.

The label also had acid house, such as Adonis’s 1987 “The Poke”, and Tyree’s “Acid Over” and there were late 1980s hip house recordings, too, such as Fast Eddie’s “Hip House” and “Yo Yo Get Funky”.[1] In the early 1990s, the label released Mike Dunn’s song “Jass Yo Azz Off”.
