Raise: I Got It (Promo VLS) (Subdub Records, 199x)

From 90s street soul to early 2000s contemporary R&B a la Mary J. Blige and Destiny’s Child, more recent contributions from my great new contributor “L.”  First up is Raise who were possibly a pseudonym for 90s Asian production outfit Simon & Diamond (Simon & Diamond Duggal.) Best known for their work with Apache Indian, they went on to create a genre of their own from the marriage of Asian and Jamaican music heard around London the in early 90s but originally started out with a street soul tune called “No More (Making Love)” by an artist called Aretha Daye in 1992. Sadly, I have no idea who the lead vocalist on the above track is.
