The Source is essentially an alias for British producer, DJ, and performer John Truelove, who also travels under the names Lectrolux and Now Voyager, among other tags. Originally the name the Source was used by Source Records when the label released "You Got the Love" featuring Candi Staton in 1986. Three years later Truelove put Staton's vocal over a track by Frankie Knuckles, turning it into a club hit, and eventually Truelove began using the Source as a release alias, one of many he would use. In 1997 Truelove signed with XL Recordings and released a 12" EP called Clouds, which featured four different mixes of the Chaka Kahn song "Clouds" sung by Kahn's sister, Yvonne Stevens, who is credited on the EP as Taka Boom. Whether there will be future releases under the name the Source is uncertain, but Truelove, founder of Truelove Label Collective, is a very busy man with many recordings hitting the clubs under a variety of names.
