First Listen! Wipe The Needle feat. Dawn Tallman – Release (Groove Odyssey)
Comin’ up with a finished ‘product’ is nothing but a release in itself. With London-based producer Lee Gomez aka Wipe The Needle delivering another one by the likes of ‘Release’.
Here we have most likely a Summerish nugget fueled with Latin, Bossa, Jazz influences. All in all offering the ideal environment to Dawn Tallman‘s blissful vocal interpretation. A song which she wrote along with long time friend and Slaag Records label manager Glenn Thornton with lush keys courtesy of Michele Chiavarini…

Born and raised in Danbury, CT, Dawn Tallman began singing in the house of God from childhood. Something one can definitely feel in her impressive repertoire. Dawn clearly belongs to the first league of singers such as Mary J Blige, Oleta Adams or Mica Paris. Her ear for harmonies and her perfect sense for the placement of backgrounds & adlibs make her a producers’ dream and an audience’s delight. Therefore, no wonder why she’s been collaborating with the producers’ who’s who since the mid 90’s.
An ambassador of Gospel, she has brouhgt her (he)art to some of the most significant projects in the history of House Music. From the memorable Voices‘ ‘Can U See The Light’ together with Michelle Weeks and the late Sabrynaah Pope. To Club Artists United‘s ‘Sweet Chariot’ along with Eddie Stockley, Jazmina, Carolyn Harding, Gerideau, Kenny Bobien and Su Su Bobien. Not to mention UDAUFL… A collective of artists which Blaze put together with the aim to raise funds to fight against AIDS back in 2003.
In 2006, she teamed up with DJ Disciple, delivering ‘Work It Out’ which became a hit. She would follow soon after with ‘Save A Place On The Dancefloor For Me’. A cut written by West End CEO Mel Cheren a few months before his death. She’s more recently remembered for ‘Feel The Vibe’. A track which got her back to the top of the charts with French producer Bob Sinclar.
