Raise featuring Veba: I Got It (CDM) (Sub Dub Records Ltd., 1996)

From 90s street soul to early 2000s contemporary R&B a la Mary J. Blige and Destiny’s Child, a fresh new contribution from Lewic with 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. The lead vocalist here is Veba (aka Beverly Green) who was mostly known for her vocal work with Rae & Christian in the late 90s and early 2000s.
