Karen Young, born in March of 1951, grew up in Northeast
Philadelphia, PA. Early in her career she sang on various jingles and as
a background vocalist for a number of Philadelphia production companies, later
performing with a group by the name of Sandd.
In 1978 Karen Young released HOT SHOT on the New York based
disco label West End Records. HOT SHOT featured 3 singles including the
immensely popular single HOT SHOT, which rose all the way to #67 on the
Billboard Hot 100 charts and also spent two weeks at the top of the US Dance
charts and with it propelling Karen Young from obscurity to stardom almost
HOT SHOT was written, arranged and produced by
Philadelphia’s very own Kurt Borusiewicz and Andy Kahn all overseen by Grammy
Award Winner Walter "Kandor” Kahn as executive producer.
Daft Punk later sampled HOT SHOT on Indo Silver Club,
featured on their debut album, Homework, released in 1996. Over 10 years later,
remixes of HOT SHOT from MaxRoxx Music, DJ Ralphi Rosario, DJ Wayne G, DJ Paul
Goodyear and Andy Kahn himself climbed all the way to #7 for two weeks on
Billboard Magazine's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart Returning Karen Young’s
name to the charts for 5 weeks almost 30 years since the original release.
