Back in America the scene had still not progressed beyond a small
number of clubs in Chicago and New York, Paradise Garage was still
the top club, although they now had Todd Terry, his tune "Weekend"
demonstrated a new House sound with hip-hop influences evident
in the quicker sampling and the more rugged bass-line. While hip-hop
had made it onto radio play-lists, the only other choices were
Rock, Country & Western or R & B.
Influential gospel/R&B-influenced Aly-us released "Time Passes On" in 1993 (Strictly Rhythm), then later, "Follow Me" which received radio airplay as well as being extensively played in clubs. Another US hit which received radioplay was the single "Time for the Perculator" by Cajmere, which became the prototye of Ghettohouse sub-genre. Although these are generally grouped in with classic house now, the early 1990s sound was different from the early 1980s Chicago house WBMX sound - due at least in part to digital audio improvements, as well as influences from the Italian House scene led by Daniele Davoli of Black Box fame.
