Making good love :
This is the first single from
the forthcoming sophomore release from Avant
called 'Ecstacy '.
The song is not quite as strong as the debut smash hit 'Seperated'
but it makes a good impression in valour nevertheless. The single is
making the rounds at various radio formats across the glode so be on
the 'ear' out for it (especially fans of the young man) he didn't
Also should mention that he
was added to Mary J.
Blige's current 'No
more Drama' tour as
the opening act so if you would like to catch the youngster live in
the the flesh then check out the upcoming shows coming to you across
Europe and the United States.
The album is slated for a
spring release so again once I have it in-house and give it the once
over I will give write you all a review.

Three years has passed since
Eric dropped his last set the excellent 'A
day in the Life' (hard
to believe but it's true, seems like yesterday - right). Well a lot's
changed for him since then most notably getting married to my favorite
actress Halle Berry (I
know fellas, I was pretty surprised too I thought she'd be my ideal
mate, one can dream can't they)
In 2000 we were teased by the
single release of 'Love
don't love me' from 'The
Brothers' soundtrack and I as like you thought that a new album
was forthcoming, it is but not as soon as most thought. Eric's busy
finishing up his latest effort amply entitled 'Better
and Better' (not a
definite title at this point though). The album has been slated for a
June release but that's up in the air at the moment also.
No track listings available as
of yet cos' he's still in the studio working on the project but I will
update everyone as soon as it becomes available.
Two albums in the last 2 years, not that
I'm complaining mind you but 'WOW' (I'm on cloud 9 here). 'The
Lady' made us wait a few years between sets last time round (8
to be exact) but that's all about to change as Sade
returns with her long awaited 'live' album called 'Lovers
For those of you who haven't
experienced her shows in person then this is the next best thing to
actually being there to experience her magic. With the original band
Hale and Paul
Spencer Denman in the
fold there's no doubt that Sade
in a class all by herself as she represents her library of work with
extended versions of the originals (evident on 'Cherish
the Day'). Present
are the usual suspects of old 'Jezebel',
and 'Smooth Operator'
as well as the latest classics like 'No
Ordinary Love', 'Kiss
of Life' and 'Somebody
Already Broke My Heart'
If you are a fan of Ms.
Adu then this set is
one not to be missed truly top notch, pure quality through and
through from start to finish. Without a doubt, a most definite Ty
