Here Comes That Sound Again is a 1979 disco single by Love De-Luxe, a dance studio group formed by British producer, Alan Hawkshaw. Vicki Brown and Jo-Ann Stone were the lead vocalists on the single; the single hit number one on the dance charts in the middle of 1979, for one week.[1] The single did not cross over to any other chart and Love De-Luxe had no other charted singles in the United States. However, elements from the song were used for the intro to the Sugarhill Gang's hit single "Rapper's Delight".[2]

The song’s chorus would later be sampled in another Billboard Dance Club Songs number one single, "That Sound" by Pump Friction, in 1997.
