You can catch her at Yang (fortnightly Sundays), Barge (monthly Sammys), and at Pussypower at the Soundhaus on Sat 31 Man -

Ultramagnetic MCs: ‘Mentally Mad' (Next Plateau) . This track’s a stress reliever, it sums up how l feel once a month, every month, know what l mean, ladies? Not to mention the strong vocals and that funky m~uted guitar riff._

Pharoahe Monch: 'Simon Says (DJ Die and Roni Size remix)‘ (Rawkus)

The hip hop version already rocked, but this drum & bass remix really kicks ass! A monstrous intro in a Wagnerian vein, those in-yer-face vocals and some naughty lyrics too. Heads a turnin’ with this. On theiurntable now.“ *

Lamont Dozier: 'Back To My Roots’ (Warner Bros)

Musically interesting every step of the way. Camping piano line, melodic guitar riff and meaningful lyrics. This track really touches my heart. A touch of disco, soul and backing vocals which give a real ethnic feel. Lovely.

., _. .9. Frankie Knuckles: '1 Need Your Love' (Trax)

Nine years later and i still get the shivers when I hear this. Thathypnotic synthesised loop, then the most memorable hook bassline, warm strings and the lush sensuous vocals all fuse together to make this a landmark dance track.
