LaToiya Williams

Thanks for stopping by The Science of Soul , this week featured album comes from L.A. based and former member of Snoop Dogg's entourage Ms LaToiya Williams. Her new album "Blue Rose" is a pretty smooth affair that I think you will enjoy, there are 3 tracks from this set included in this weeks playlist. Be sure to checkout the album. Jackson Mississippi soul lady Stephanie Luckett is getting great revues on her new release "Right Thing Wrong Man" it's a real killer cut. The ladies are featured quite heavily on this weeks new release list with NYC soul lady Mel'lisa Morgan we have the title track from her new album "Love Demands" we also have Southern soul lady Karen Wolfe and representing Cleveland Ohio Ms Conya Doss.

Luckett
Not forgetting the fella's, I have a new release from Patrick Adams called "Smile," a track that I think has a real Sly & The Family Stone feel to it, more you hear it the better it gets. I'm dipping into current albums from Brandon Wattz and Chairmen of the Board Featuring Ken Knox plus Melvin Knight's excellent set "Shades of Us". For the Old Skool folks there are classics from Little Royal, Linda Lewis and a great track from The Ultimate's "I Just Can't Stand It" that was brought to my attention by Susan Benedict over there in Indiana. Well that's just a taster so sit back relax hit the play button and feed your soul. Please always remember to tell a friend about The Science of Soul.

Keith Sweat

Welcome to my Science of Soul and with normal service now resumed. I have the regular mixture  of 'classic old school jams' and the best 'new releases' with that keep that old school flavour. Featured Album this week comes from Keith Sweat's "Playing for Keeps"  release. I think Keith is very much an album artist as opposed to just looking for a hit single and this set is a typical example of his quality work, very difficult to select 3 tracks to feature as there is so much great stuff on here but there will be more coming over the next few weeks. I am a little behind with new music, so this weeks show includes some of what I didn't get chance to include before my trip.

Dynamic Superiors
Chi Town Soul man Slique Jay Adams is back with a new single called "So Good," and there is a great new song from Detroit artist Big L with "If I Knew Then," it's the first single from his upcoming EP  named "Round 1," and if  this is anything to go by it's gonna be a classic. It was great to see The Dynamic Superiors on my recent trip, there latest release "Show Me" was a real show stopper! so listen out, think you will enjoy. Also today tracks come from Cool Million, Bfly LadyDi and from Houston, Texas, The Suffers.

Wil Hart (Delphonics)
I have also included a recent song from the lovely Ms Uvee Hayes with Mr Mellow himself Ty Causey.
UK label Soul Junction Records continue to unearth some real gems and their latest  is from The Internationals is no exception to the ruler, as always it's a double A-Side 7 inch single,  I have one side this week and one scheduled for next weeks show. Be sure to get these ASAP they are pressed in very limited quantities and wont last to long. There is lots for the old school folks including The Delfonics who did an amazing set at there recent show in Richmond, Va. If you get a chance to catch them live be sure to take it. Ok, its music time just hit the play button sit back and relax..

Case biography via Allmusic.com
A native New Yorker, Case got his start in the music biz in the '90s, singing backup on albums by several renowned R&B artists (such as Usher). Signed to the Def Jam label in the mid-'90s, Case issued his self-titled debut in 1996, followed by Personal Conversation in 1999 and Open Letter in 2001. On the latter release, Case wrote each song with a different person in mind ("A Song for Skye" was written for his daughter, while the tracks "Love of My Life" and "Shine" were inspired by the great Stevie Wonder). Case was joined by such big-name producers as Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Tim & Bob. In 2004 he asked to be released from his Def Jam contract in order to launch his own label, Indigo Blue. In 2009 The Rose Experience became the first release for the label. He switched to Real Talk Entertainment for 2010's Here, My Love, and moved to eOne for 2015's Heaven's Door.
