If I tried to enter an all-encompassing playlist (which would be around 30 songs- including remixes), my thoughts about every song listed here, every album (which I do own), and comments about each of the group members, background vocalists, producers, and remixers, it would be like reading a small book. I’m a major fan, for sure. I’m not the only one. Check out how the collaboration with the one and only Trader Mike came about…
