Catrina C: Gotta Git My Groove On (EP) (South Movement Recording, 1998)

From Anderson, SC, further under-the-radar R&B from Catrina Chester, a singer-songwriter that was formally one third of a girl group called M.A.C. (Mandy, Asabi and Catrina) before releasing this solo EP in 1998. A few tracks are influenced by southern hip hop styles but the type of music is predominantly late 90s R&B with an underground sound. Two (tracks 1 and 2) may or may not have been recorded with her former group M.A.C. and one (track 6) is a feature from the producers DJ Tuc and Cool Chuck who were also joint founders of the record label South Movement Recordings. I don't know if a full-length album was ever released but according to her Facebook page she has at least two CDs under her belt and was at one point working on a third.
