As far as I know this is the only single by Fresh Mark & Black Hawk. There’s some secrecy about their true identities, but after some not incredibly thorough investigation on the interweb, I believe that either Fresh Mark or Black Hawk (or maybe both) is Tobias Kirmayer (BEWARE: MySpace link), boss at the fabulous Tramp Records. The question is why he didn’t release this single on Tramp, though.
Anyway, “I Got The Number” is some heavy funk/hip-hop for serious rump shaking, with the fine contribution by The Soul Investigators, of Nicole Willis fame, as a bonus on the flipside.
I got the single from Dewey Sakitumi‘s Killa Cutz in Amsterdam.
