Members:

Mike Kydd, Rob ‘Master Bass’ Mabry, Warren McDonald

The High Fidelity Three, consisting of Mike Kydd, Rob ‘Master Bass’ Mabry and Warren McDonald, released two singles for Cutting Records: B-Boys Breakdance in 1984, featuring the classic Latin Rascals Dub mix; and Satisfaction in 1985, loosely based on the chorus of ‘Satisfaction’ by The Rolling Stones and featuring Soul singer and songwriter, Sarah Dash.

Both tracks were produced and edited by Aldo Marin and his brother Amado together with Hashim. Satisfaction included additional music courtesy of Mean Gene from The Imperial Brothers and Roey Shamir with backing vocals from David Sanchez.

Although B-Boys Breakdance featured rap vocals, it was the extended instrumental that was more popular with listeners, thanks to the production and editing skills of the Latin Rascals.
