- Lady (Hear me Tonight):
Hailing from France Romain
(yes like the lettuce - just spelt differently) and Yann
form the new dance group Modjo,
a duo who came to be while gigging for other bands in and around
France in 98. Once the idea to form a group came about that year they
recorded and released 'Lady
and already have an international hit on their hands in Europe.
After taking Europe on its
heels 'Lady '
gets a nationwide US release last month (through MCA/Universal
distribution) and already has caused a stir across the board. The song
itself is a catchy house club number much in renaissance to Spacedust's
'Music feels good with
you ' from a few years
back. I like this one a lot and will be playing it very frequent and
often so don't expect this one to die a quick death.
The album is due to released in
March and the next single will be 'Chillin
featuring remixes by the Buffalo
Bunch and Herve
Bordes due for release in
the next few weeks. If you're a house fan (as I am) then you'll enjoy
this one. A TY-D Pick
- Strictly the Best Vol.26:
The latest edition to the
'Strictly the Best' series ushers in the best of last years lovers
rock tracks featuring the likes of Freddie
McGregor with 'I
see it in you ', Sanchez
- 'Sometimes ',
- 'Just be good
' and Jr.
Curtis - 'Love
so nice '.
As a whole, the album is a
delight to listen to. You literally absorb each track without
hesitation not a bad cut in the lot, a really well produced set which
was compiled by producer Lloyd
The series started back in the
mid 80's and has steadily grown in popularity with each release ever
since. This is a great album, I highly recommend any true Lovers Rock
fan to go out and get a copy of their own. Another TY-D
Pick for you to enjoy
Hotshot: LP (MCA)
Orville Burrell) is back after a 2 yr hiatus with a new album and a new label in MCA.
Nicknamed Mr. Boombastic
after his mega-hit single 'Boombastic
back in 95, Hotshot
finds Shaggy's lyrics and delivery
are as sharp and crisp as ever which is very evident with his current
single 'It wasn't me
' featuring Ricardo 'Ricrok'
Ducent. A story about adultery
and being caught in the act.
This set has more of the usual
sample riddled tracks from 'Leave
it to me ' (Freddie
me Tonight ') to 'Dance
and Shout ' (The
your body down to the ground
The set begins with the title cut 'Hotshot
' a bouncy 2 stepper
catered to please the listening Shaggy enthusiast, following suit is 'Lonely
lover ', 'Angel
' and 'Keeping
it real '.
Other notables include 'Not
Fair ', 'Freaky
Girl ' and the bonus CD
track 'Chica Bonita '.
With 2 million units
already sold here in the states alone, Shaggy
is enjoying his most successful album yet and rightfully so. A must have for
all Shaggy fans.
