Déjà were a synth soul duo comprised of Starleana Young and Curt Jones, both had previously been members of Slave and the spin-off band Aurra.
Both Slave and Aurra were led by funk legend Steve Washington but in 1985, Starleana and Curt cut the cord with both Salsoul and Steve Washington and signed with Next Plateau (Ten Records/Virgin in Europe), where they almost instantly found success. There, they released the singles “Happy Feeling”and “Like I Like It” (from the 1985 album of the same title). The latter was amazingly enough Aurra’s first record to hit the British charts. The following year, the single release “You And Me Tonight” became a huge hit (U.S. R&B #2/ U.K. #12), which led to a quick re-issue of a partially remixed version of the “Like I Like It” LP, with the addition of the hit single, of course.
Due to legal disagreements with Steve Washington, Aurra then became Déjà and recorded their first album under the new band name for Ten Records/Virgin in 1987. The album “Serious” would include the previous hit “You And Me Tonight” with the 12″ single mixed by House music pioneer Paul Simpson.
