Sha-Du-Ni: Da Da (VLS) (Black Story Records, 1999)

More independent R&B out on the UK at the end of the 90s. Gone are the street soul sounds of yesteryear to be replaced with sounds reminiscent of Rodney Jerkins and Kevin ‘She’kspere’ Briggs for the new millennium. Here is a further female R&B group with a very underground Destiny’s Child-esque sound and a further find from Bristol-based label Black Story Records which had been active since the mid-90s. I know nothing about them but I believe their names were Celestine Gordon, Syreeta Paris and Tracy Mulzac. The producer Mark Watson is now a prominent mix DJ in Bristol
