Xtreme: The Best Of Xtreme (High Velocity Music, 200x)

From the same camp as For Eternity and Karisma, here is another (male) group on hapless Chi-Town label High Velocity Music in the early 2000s. The CEO/President of the label was Darrin Houston, mostly known in collector's circuits for his 1997 album "Never Going To Leave" and producers on various projects ranged from Maurice Joshua (For Eternity/Karisma) to Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins (Jay Mathis.) I don't know what happened but none of the projects were ever officially released and at least one of the groups parted on bad terms. I don't know anything about the above group but as with the others on this label, the sound is very early 2000s contemporary R&B combining uptempo club tracks and smooth slow jams. Many thanks again to Stuaaart for the contribution.
