Damozel Damozel - Everyday's a party: (MCA)


Damozel are 4 young, very beautiful, sexy ladies whose names are Lisa, Tasha, Tamisha, and Brandy. The group's name was taken from the French name 'Damoiselle' which means 'Young lady' and that they are with the average age between them being just 18. They scored a hit with their debut single 'You don't know me like that' taken from their debut album of the same name earlier this year. 

The quartet now returns with their very impressive follow-up 'Everyday's a party' an energetic and equally brilliant R&B dance track produced by newcomer Eddie Berkeley. All is present to make this one an even bigger hit than the last, a mid-tempo thumping bassline with great instrumentation to compliment the song. 

No release date on the single or the album yet but it's likely to drop sometime this summer. Don't pass up on this one I will be playing it very frequent and often on the show as I would say " A TY-D Pick indeed".

Allure Allure - Enjoy yourself: (MCA) 


After blowing up the spot in 97 with tracks like 'Head over heals' w/Nas, 'No Question' featuring LL Cool J and the tear jerker ballad 'All Cried Out' the old Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam hit from years back all of which was found on  their self titled debut set I always wondered what happened with these young ladies and low and behold here they are.

Now signed to MCA after the demise of Mariah Carey's Crave label (of which they were signed to) the girls return with an excellent track 'Enjoy Yourself' produced by whom I feel should win the next grammy for producer of the year Kay Gee. His uncanny ability to come up with such top notch tracks these past year is a testament to just how talented this man really is. The song is all about having fun and 'enjoying yourself' while retaining a positive message for the masses. I have always had a soft spot for these young ladies and had hoped they did not become the latest casualty in the one hit wonder ward.   

No title for the forthcoming album yet as well as a street date but be certain of this you will be hearing a lot more of this track on the show.  A most def Ty-D Pick

DrizaDriza - Vision: LP (Oyster)


1996 is a year I remember well because the one track that stood out to me was Driza Bone's 'Real Love' It was the standard, a classic track and I don't say that everyday with a song that's just 5 years old but it just stuck with me the first time I heard it. 

5 years later the group's founder Vince Garcia dropped the 'bone' from the name replaced the female lead (Vivian Wray replacing Kimberly Peer) and released the brilliant 'Vision'. The lead off single is the brilliant 'Let it out' a mellow dance number which is brought to life by Vivian's high octane chops. 

Drawing a lot of attention is 'Confusion' similar in style to 'Real Love' but yet different in its delivery, this one is my pick as the next single and I have already had some great responses from playing it on the show.

Other notables include 'Dream on', 'One Reason', 'Secret Fantasy' and 'Rhythm of Life'. I ask you not to overlook this one the album is in stores in the states as an import.  TY-D Pick  for your ear here
