Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


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!

Dee Dee Brave - Dee Dee Brave Album (1991)

It's time to feature some of our house music sisters who didn't get as much play as the likes of Crystal Waters, Ce Ce Peniston or even Robin S. Nothing much can be found on Dee Dee Brave, other than that her real name is Holly Simpson, but I do know this album is considered quite rare and is coveted by many, if the requests I've received for it from Discogs are any indication. It is produced by house god Kerri Chandler (who also produced the one and only album by female house duo Bas Noir). The song "My My Lover" was beloved in the clubs, especially in the UK, I'm told, as was her ode to the producer himself, "For Kerri". Though the singles "So Many Roads," "Can't Get Over It" and "There Is So Much" were released in the clubs to some success, the woman herself kept a low profile. Where she is now is anyone's guess, though she does still pop up in some of Kerri's work as well as songs by others as a featured vocalist. She has an awesome soulful voice that really should be appreciated more.
