I am at the very core a true,dedicated music lover who appreciates quality music from a diverse mix of musical stlyes be it House,True Hip-Hop,Jazz, Nu-Soul,Broken Beat, Soul,Disco etc.Music that is birthed by true artists,producers,Dj's who realise the power that is music and are true to the artform that music is.

I have a soft spot for independent artists,labels who despite the pressure to 'adapt' to commercialism have remained dedicated in bringing out music that does not conform to the 'pop stereotype' which masquarades as 'music'.

My aim of being in this site apart from a collector is to seek out artists,labels,producers and users be they buyers,sellers who are equally as passionate about quality music.

I would go on and list artists,producers, tracks that I love but it would be an endless list that will need revision on a daily basis since music is a continous journey of discovery.

There is no greater joy in life than the pleasure of gaining stimulation from previously 'unheard' ,'unknown' music.

Regards Alan :)

There is no denying the fact that this is a good album from track 1 to track 12, It may sound stereotypical to repeat the usual musical jargon like (it's one of those of those albums on 'repeat') but the truth is that IT IS. And why do I say that because ... See full review

Mine will not be to add much on what has already been said about Teena Marie as an artist,but to say what I feel an artist who transcended barriers and broke stereotypes as to which 'race' do certain brands of music belong to.

'Scoundrel' your review said it best more so for some of us who use the recordings from Naked Music as a bench mark( Rightly or Wrongly) for what a listener should expect when it comes to 'Deep and Soulful' house. This album is top class all the way ... See full review

The world of deep soulful house can be difficult to navigate more so if a passionate fan of this style of House seeks the kind of perfection that has been achieved by labels such as 'Naked Music'. Few artists,producers,vocalists have managed to bring out ... See full review
