Yinka: Searching My Soul (CDM) (NCS Entertainment, 1999)

One and only major release from Yinka who is not to be confused with early 90s British MC Yinka “The Voice of Reason.” I don’t know anything about the artist but the track was record of the week in Blues & Soul and had brilliant reviews in all the magazines including Black Echoes.  It later appeared on a compilation by the producer Andy Whitmore called Xplosive (2007.) Whitmore previously worked with Lemar, Eternal, Ashanti, Beverly Knight & Kool and The Gang. As for Yinka, she released a follow-up garage single with Mark Hill’s brother Darren Hill.
