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!

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!
