Taking Over for Dwele 

From my good friends at Room Service:

"Due to a scheduling conflict, Dwele will be unable to perform at the 4th Annual Room Service CMJ showcase but we are pleased to announce the addition of Stephanie McKay to the lineup.

Hailing from the Bronx, Stephanie has played with the likes of Kelis, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Portishead producer Geoff Barrows, who co-prodcued her debut album. She was recently featured on Roy Hargrove's Grammy nominated RH Factor project and also completed an international tour with Detroit-based keyboardist/composer Amp Fiddler."

Bonus joint:
Check out the McKay single "Take Me Over", one of my favorite records of 2003. On this incredible track, she rocked over a loop from the old ska staple "Double Barrel" by Dave & Ansell Collins presaging the current craze for vintage reggae sounds, from those Alicia Keys bootleg reggae remixes of songs from her last album to I-Wayne's "Can't Satisfy Her" and Jr. Gong's "Jamrock," by at least a year or more.
