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!

Terra Deva - Pulled Apart (1998)

Terra Deva McNair got her first taste of fame as a Mouseketeer, appearing on two seasons of the Mickey Mouse Club. Unlike her castmates JC, Justin, Xtina and Britney, upon leaving the show Terra decided to focus on music far outside the mainstream. She traveled to the UK and befriended several DJs in the rave scene. Spurred on by the exciting sounds around her, she recorded her debut album using several producers from that scene, the result being an electronic exploration in trip hop and drum 'n' bass. The album was an underground success, and the singles "Fresh Start" and "Inside" were club faves. But the music was far from the pop music recorded by her contemporaries that was favoured by the public, and Terra and the album remained underground. She continued on as a featured vocalist on several club hits by acts like Furry Phreaks, Pete Moss, Charles Webster, Who Da Funk and, most successfully, Shakedown, whose "At Night" with Terra was a UK hit. Excitingly, her website indicates that she is recording a new album, and she states her current obsessions are disco, freestyle and the Mary Jane Girls, so consider me excited for her next release!
