Lost & Found: Pure Sugar – “Delicious”

Pure Sugar were Jennifer Starr on vocals and producers Pete Lorimer and Richard “Humpty” Vission. Even though Pure Sugar boasted the names of such well-known producers, Starr’s voice was the real attraction. She once told Rolling Stone: “[People] just think that I couldn’t possibly have any talent cause I’m wearing ponytails and a bikini onstage, but I can push that and say ‘you’re going to realize by the end of this show that I’m up here with ponytails and a bikini and a voice!”

In 1998, Pure Sugar signed to Geffen Records and released their debut single “Delicious”. The single, which samples the bass riff from A Taste of Honey’s 1978 hit “Boogie Oogie Oogie”, managed to crack the Billboard top 100 singles chart at number 66. Thanks to an arsenal of top-notch mixes from Vission & Lorimer, Roger Sanchez and DJ Icey, the song found a much more responsive audience in dance clubs across the country. Pure Sugar released their self-titled album and two more singles (“Hands To Heaven” / “These Are The Times”) before eventually calling it quits.

You can read an older interview with Jennifer, who now works as a photographer, over on Milk Carton Pop Stars. I really hope she returns to singing because her voice is made for dance music.
