Dajae is one of the undisputed vocal queens of house music. Appearing
on the house music scene in the early nineties, she was one of the
key drivers in the success of the Cajual label, linking up with
renowned producer Cajmere to make classics such as Brighter
Days, U Got Me Up and Is It All Over My
Dajae has constantly
been in demand as a vocalist since then, and two years ago the Junior
Sanchez produced B With U was the debut release on Roger
Sanchez R-Senal label and later licensed to Manifesto Records
for the UK.
The last two
years have arguably seen her produce the finest performances of
her career. The E-Smoove produced Time, signed to Credence
Records was closely followed by the summer anthem Everyday,
a collaboration between Felix da Housecat and Junior Jack released
by Defected and to cap both she teamed up with the peerless Full
Intention to make What Do You Want?, the most successful
release so far from Essence. Unlike many of her peers in dance music,
Dajae puts on a great show, as those at the Autumn 2001 Southport
Weekender can testify her only UK performance in recent years.
Chicago working with producers Harrison Crump and Ron Carroll, her
most recent cut was another peach for essence, the supremely soulful
Searchin, produced by Harrison Crump and remixed by
Felix da Housecat and CR Project..
