One of the more obscure '80s funk acts from Dayton, OH, New Horizons nonetheless benefited from the assistance of the Troutman family (Roger, Larry, Robert, and Terry) and a deal with Columbia. This Funky Town Grooves release combines the Thomas brothers' Something New (1983) and Gonna Have Big Fun (1984), both of which were recorded at Troutman Sound Labs and bear the unmistakable Zapp/Troutman synth-funk stamp. The earlier album features "Your Thing Is Your Thing," a Top 40 R&B single. The latter album did not produce any hits, but it does feature a handful of appealing songs that are closer to mellow modern soul than funk à la Zapp's "I Can Make You Dance."
