Joy Denalane – Maureen

null

Born and raised in Berlin as the daughter of a German mother and a South African father, Joy Maureen Denalane has sung lyrics in various languages, including English and German as well as the South African languages Xhosa and Shangan. Although her stylish vocals and sounds are clearly influenced by artists ranging from Letta Mbulu to Lauryn Hill, her inspiration to do music, period, originates from hip-hop, especially that of female firebrands Salt-N-Pepa and Roxanne Shanté, which began seeping into Germany in the late ’80s.

“MAUREEN” is a skilful blend of all the elements that made Joy”s previous two albums (“Mamani” and “Born & Raised”) so unique: clear, direct and yet complex lyrics which strike the balance between being lyrical on one hand and effortlessly cool on the other, strong tracks and outstanding production which lies somewhere between modern soul, powerful funk and impressive hip-hop beats.

Zo! – Sunstorm

null

“SunStorm” is the latest album from Detroit-area born, DC-area based producer/multi-instrumentalist Zo!  Best known for his 2008 collaboration with Phonte on the cult classic “Zo and Tigallo Love the 80′s” as well as his work on The Foreign Exchange’s Grammy-nominated LP, “Leave It All Behind,” ‘SunStorm” is an extensive 12-track set that shows the ever-expanding range and depth of Zo! and the entire Foreign Exchange Music family.
Indie soul siren and American Idol vocalist Sy Smith serves up a slice of 70′s soul on the breezy “Greatest Weapon Of All Time,” and Lady Alma, a Philly veteran and stalwart of the UK house scene, takes it to the dance floor on the frenetic “Free Your Mind.” The album’s lead single, “This Could Be The Night,” features Darien Brockington, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Eric Roberson, and Rapper Big Pooh of Little Brother over a thumping two-step groove specifically intended for the ‘steppers’ of Zo’s native Detroit. Another highlight is the Phonte-assisted “Flight Of The Blackbyrd,” Zo’s heartfelt homage to the 70′s jazz/funk fusion of The Mizell Bros. and George Duke.

Luther Vandross Albums!

Rhythm and blues singer and songwriter, Luther Vandross came on the music scene in 1975, singing back-up for David Bowie, and co-writing his hit single, “Fame.” Going on to sing back-up for several other popular singers, Vandross released his own album, “Never Too Much,” in 1981, and it immediately went to the top of the R&B charts. Each of his next five albums sold more than a million copies, and Vandross won his first Grammy  Award in 1990, for best R&B male vocal performance. He went on to record many more hit albums, and won several more Grammys.Born in New York in 1951, Vandross began his career writing and performing jingles for television commercials.

In April, 2003, Vandross suffered a stroke that left him in a coma for nearly two months. In June, he came out of the coma, and a week later his final album, Dance With My Father, was released, debuting at number one on the pop charts. The album won four Grammys, including Song of the Year for the title song.

Never having fully recovered from the stroke, and suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure, Vandross died in July 2005.

Coultrain – The Adventures Of Seymour Liberty

null

Spacey soul from Coultrain — an up-and-coming singer from the St Louis scene, and one with a really unique sort of sound! The album’s a wonderful debut effort — far more mature and complex than you might expect, with a really cosmic feel that’s somewhere between 70s spacey soul and some of the more future-thinking work from the recent Detroit scene — yet all put together with a sense of timing and phrasing that’s clearly Coultrain’s own! Rhythms range from mellow and straightforward, to more complicated and angular — and Coultrain’s voice is often great enough on its own, but sometimes sounds even better with a bit of flanged-out production. Titles include “Green”, “Lilac Tree”, “Screw”, “Girl Of My Dreams”, “Swimmin In The Stars”, “Lost In Translation”, “Playin Catch Up”, “Self Pity”, “Who R U”, and “Endangered Species”.

I posted this when rappamelo was on blogger then it was lost when the blog was deleted, this is the album out in 2007 and probably during 2010 he will release his new album, enjoy!

Stacy Epps Albums!

A true rare groove vocalist and emcee delivers heavy messages that flow like a summer breeze over hard- hitting beats. Stacy Epps breathes solar winds through Atlanta’s progressive soul scene. Raised in a military family, Stacy started her career equipped with an inviting global perspective, vintage earrings from her grandmother’s collection, and a law degree from the University of Southern California

In ten years she’s established a globally reaching reputation for sonic excellence in the underground hip hop community. Epps is on a mission to see how far the music can spread through truly independent efforts. The people are the catalyst. Through direct contact and physical distribution she is embarking on an experimental release of her debut solo album “The Awakening” this summer, through her label Japanubia Musik, LLC.

You may have heard her as half of the jazzy rap duo Sol Uprising. She also works with some of the underground’s illest scientists: Madlib, MF DOOM, OH NO, Wildchild, J Rawls and Scienz of Life. Her sensually sophisticated singing is only topped when she grabs the mic to rhyme with the precision of Bahamadia, of whom she and femcee Invincible toured Europe with on the Sistas in Rhyme Tour in December, 2006.

Dwele Albums!

Andwele Gardner (born February 14, 1978), better known by his stage name Dwele is a soul singer, songwriter and record producer from Detroit, Michigan.

Gardner was raised on the west side of Detroit in a musical family. He played piano from the age of six, later taking up trumpet, bass and guitar. He was deeply affected by the fatal shooting of his father outside his home when he was age ten, later stating “I learned to put my emotions into music; it was my therapy.”He cites Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Roy Ayers, Miles Davis, and Freddie Hubbard as favorite artists, and took inspiration from hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, becoming an MC, and working with Slum Village. Gardner recorded a demo in his bedroom, called, The Rize, and sold it out of the trunk of his car. He had about 100 copies, which sold out within a week. He caught the ears of local heroes Slum Village and more specifically their world-renowned producer J Dilla.Slum Village invited Dwele to sing the hook of the song “Tainted” for their album Trinity (Past, Present and Future). It became an instant classic and led to more high profile work with female rapper Bahamadia, the all-star group Lucy Pearl and London’s New Sector Movement.[4] Dwele signed to Virgin Records in 2003, who released his debut album, Subject, which mixed neo soul and hip hop. In a 2005 review in The Independent, his style was summed up: “Dwele’s rooted in vintage soul but isn’t stuck in the past, overly reverential or an exercise in pastiche – there’s a major hip-hop edge which betrays his original incarnation as a rapper.” A second album, Some Kinda…, followed in 2005. He then later signed with RT Music Group and KOCH records in March, 2008.
