Gotta share this though. Killin this album this week. Not new however but came out earlier this year. PLUS I bought it for £1.99 on Amazon (brand new & sealed) BARGAIN!
Emmanuel is a producer from the UK with nuff UK love represented on this CD. Gotta support our own - especially when they are doing big tings and deserve the recognition. Take a listen:
My FAV track, it's very summerish - DAMELO (ft. Belle)
Next track is - Getaway (ft. Celetia (what happened to her anyway?!))
Lastly - Pretend (ft. Nate James (who sounds somewhat like Stephen Simmonds on this cut))

It's been a loooooooong time since I've shared any music with you people. Not that I've been meditating in silence, nothing so deep, I just haven't got round to it.
Can't quite remember how I came across Johanna (we are obviously good friends since we are on a first name basis) but that's all by the by anyway.
Johanna is a Swedish native who now lives in Canada. I'm hoping she gets some recognition but we shall see eh? The sound is laid back with a slight jazzy feel.
Have a listen:

Who killed my brother
I don't often watch Saturday night tv but I was flick through the channels (supposed to be cleaning) and I came across this documentary. Very moving. It centered around Kelso Cochrane who was murdered in 1959 in Notting Hill. See, it seems like years ago but I look at it like this; in 1959 my mother was 3 years old and my grandparents had been in this country all of 5 or six years (if that). It wasn't that long ago. I can't watch programmes like this because they make my blood boil to think about all the things that my grandparents (and my mother as the first generation of kids born here) went through. You may think racism is dead and everyone's over because it's no longer overt. But I think a little more sinister. Those youths that killed Kelso Cochrane are probably around my grandparents age so we pass people with this mentality all the time. Just because they are old doesn't mean they weren't involved and don't think like that still and we all know we learn from our parents........so the cycle continues. Sometimes it so easy to forget what those before us had to go through but every now and then we get reminders.
