1999 Flashback: Shanks & Bigfoot - Sweet Like Chocolate

This month marks 13 years since UK garage/dance music producers Shanks & Bigfoot topped the charts with their breakthrough hit Sweet Like Chocolate.

Steven Meade and Danny Langsman were originally known on the underground scene as Doolally, mainly thanks to their 2-step classic Straight from the Heart, featuring vocalist Sharon Woolf.

But they became a mainstream success after the release of Sweet Like Chocolate (also sung by Woolf) in May 1999. The track went platinum; was top 10 across the globe, and maintained the UK’s number one chart spot for a month.

According to Music Week, the tune ‘became the first record ever to top the independent, r&b, dance and main CIN charts simultaneously’.
