I’m speechless….y’all on some ole Vulcan mind meld with me right now (LOL)…. I occassionally DJ for an Afro-Bloco I play in (similar to what Curtis Pierre is doing in N.O.) and I would play this track A LOT- it is a cool transition from some faster Axe music like Timbalada to House or Afro-Beat…a lot of broken beat type tracks fall short for me because they may have an ‘interesting’ time signature or utilize percussion that isn’t often heard on tracks, but they are UNDANCEABLE….its like what Tony Medina said "Do the People like it Motha’F***a?" However, this track has that whole broken beat vibe that is accessible for dancers…and that’s just talking about what Afronaught did with it…when you factor in Alison’s voice, it goes from being a track that gets your heart pumping to something that makes you want to leap up and stay stuck in the air… Alison David and Nadira Shakoor (‘Tree of Life’ and a bunch of other Osunlade collabs) have fire in their voices that reminds me of N’Dea Davenport, who for me set the standard for Neo Soul singers (until Badu)…. So in short, this is a Great Track.

Glad you like the track. visit her website. she shares a lot of her music via downloads. the distribution for her indy cd, Believe, is by an outfit called No Limit. Not the New Orleans rap krewe but rather a collective of high school students in England who decided to get into alternative distribution and marketing. Everybody talks about how commercially driven and distasteful, not to mention rapicious, the major music industry is, but when it comes to supporting alternatives, many of us blance (that is, turn white as corporate capitalism). If we want better, if we want alternatives, we must support alternatives. It’s not a color thing, it’s a philosophical approach to how we live our lives. Alison is living a commitment to making a change. If you believe, support your beliefs.

Yeah, I’m not enthusiastic about this “Dance” tune but I’m glad to hear that voice again. If I’m not mistaken, Alison David sung on Mellow’s soundtrack to Roman Coppola’s debut movie”CQ”. Check out “Take Me Higher”, that’s a fantastic song.

Hm.., just downloaded it & listening right now. Great voice, but the beat doesn’t work for me. Not that that means much, ’cause I’m at work right now & not in the habit of visiting clubs anyway.
However I’ll give it a few more spins later.
Thanx

Watched a movie entitled ‘Trauma’ a few nights ago. The outgoing song over the credits was ‘Broken Dreams’. It was an amazing song w/ a mesmerizing dream-like feel. I waited for the credits to run through to find out it was performed by Alison David. This was the first time I heard of you, and am hoping your music is similar to this song. What a great feeling ‘Broken Dreams’ was giving me…
