Eklipse: Alien Records Fall & Winter Releases (Promo CD) (Alien Records, 1996)

The second of two groups signed to Oakland-based label Alien Records, which was set up and owned by veteran producers Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy in the mid 90s. As far as I am aware, this group - an R&B sextuplet - never released a single and the three tracks on the above sampler is the only work by them I could find. I know nothing about them but they later changed their name to Sol Eklypse and under this pseudonym, they were briefly signed to Warner Bros. Records. At least two tracks from the above set ended up on their proposed album Ghetto Sol, which may or may not have been recorded for Alien initially. Produced by Foster & McElroy, some were very reminiscent of En Vogue's style although the project was abandoned in the end.

Included tracks

Eye To Eye 4:05
Last Night 4:39
Let It Flow 3:59
