Various: HAT-TOWN and 7 Presents The Review (Hat-Town Records, 1999)

A further bomb from the Bay Area (Oakland) and once again featured on Series 2 of Street Beats. Formally one sixth of late 80s R&B/dance group Split Image,  T. Hatter (aka Terrence Hatter) produced this amazingly smooth set in 1999 which somehow slipped under the radar. Featuring artists from the roster of his Hat-Town label at the time, including quite rare track from Otis & Shugg which was recorded after they were signed (albeit very briefly) to Atlantic in 1995.
