Robert Clivilles and David Cole, who were known as C & C Music Factory, were two of the most prolific producers of the early '90s. Backed by the MC stylings of Freedom Williams, C & C Music Factory had one of the biggest songs of the decade with "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)." GONNA MAKE YOU SWEAT also includes "Things That Make You Go HMMMM" and "Just a Touch of Love (Everyday)." Martha Wash, Zelma Davis, and numerous others contributed background and supporting vocals. The two went on to produce and remix numerous other acts until David Cole died in 1995 of spinal meningitis. Clivilles continued his production career alone thereafter.
