More unknown indie R&B from out the UK

From the late 90s to the early 2000s, further unknown female R&B on vinyl that I know very little about. Though the singer doesn’t come up anywhere, “Pack N Go” appears to be produced by Wayne Marshall who released a couple of albums on Soul Town Records in the mid-90s while the second track “Guys Guys Guys” is seemingly a reply to Jay-Z’s 2001 song “Girls Girls Girls and was produced by Just Blaze. Morita’s “You” is also obscure though the label, predominantly a reggae and dancehall label, released a further artist Nathan (later Starboy Nathan) in the mid-2000s. A familiar name pops up as the mixer: Wayne Lawes of Full Crew. The final track “Give It To You” by MK is probably the most obscure of all with just a Vodafone number on the label. Only one (Dee Dee Morrison) has a release date of 1999. The others have a similar late 90s/early 2000s sound but Cellie – owing to the sample used – probably dates from around 2001.
