Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Monik Garo – Monik Garo (1994)

This is going to be a short one, kids, because I have no info about dear old Monik. I do know that she’s Canadian and that she released only this one album. It’s a dance pop album, part euro-house, part classic house and part pop. Half of it was produced by Barry Harris, formerly of synth-pop act Kon Kan and currently part of remixers extraordinaire Thunderpuss. The other half was produced by unknowns. Monik did have minor hits in Canada with “Natural Desire”, “Tell Me Why” and “Gotta Get Close To You” (which was co-produced by isle postees The Boomtang Boys), but a minor hit in Canada is basically no hit at all. And her appeal certainly did not carry to other parts of the world. She had no profile and quickly disappeared. This is definitely a case of “where are they now”? It’s a fun dance album, though, so give it a go.

  2. I really like this album, remember some of these songs from my childhood (Wh I've got no idea, she never had a hit in the UK).

    I've found that she's got a track on a compilation released in 1999 but it's a new one, not from the album.
