VIDEO OF THE DAY: BRAND NEW FROM ANANE "PLASTIC PEOPLE"

Mixtape Sessions. Music for the People.


The moment I heard this song, I instantly fell in love with it. Admittedly, I had just picked up Grace Jones' "The Ultimate Collection" and had been rockin' it loud around the house, along with her new "Hurricane" album. So maybe the similarity in "Plastic People" to some of Grace's grooves drew me in. Either way, the song is brilliant. :) It talks about the phoneys of the world and how transparent their evil is. Anane proclaims "You stand there with your crocodile smile. I don't play by your rules. Do I look like a stupid girl? There's a voice that I listen to and its telling me 'you think I'm a fool!' Stand back!" Love this!

I took a listen to her brand new album "Ananesworld" and loved that too. The album is produced by Grammy Award Winner Louie Vega and co-produced by Anane herself. On both a personal and professional level, Grammy Award Winner Louie Vega is a very important person in Anane's life. Not only is Louie Vega this album's producer and a great teacher/mentor, but he's also Anane's husband. Working together they recruited a talented team of collaborators including songwriter Duane Harden (Groove Doctors and Bob Sinclar writer); Lem Springsteen (Mood II Swing); and 1992 Best Female R&B Vocal Performance Grammy award winner Lisa Fischer, who not only sang and arranged background vocals but also played an integral part in writing the tracks "Plastic People" and "Rock The Cradle."

And if it couldn't get any better, the video to "Plastic People" is brilliant also!
