One of the first artists signed by Trax Rachel Cain - known as Screamin Rachael became -the first house artist to have a major label deal when she signed to Teldec in Germany which was owned by Universal. Her continued belief and work with the Trax label through the years helped to promote and propel classics like "Can You Feel It" by Larry Heard, "Acid Tracks" by Phuture, "No Way Back" by Adonis, and "Move Your Body" by Marshall Jefferson. These tracks, and others such as My Main Man and Rock Me, by Cain herself helped to propel the revolution that is known as house music today.
Screamin Rachael was instrumental in helping spread the House sound to New York City and eventually to Europe. In 1987, she recorded "Fun with Bad Boys" with her friend and mentor, Bronx-born DJ/producer Afrika Bambaataa, who is widely regarded as the Godfather of Hip Hop. This track helped launch the “Hip House” sound.
