For the next 95 North Records next release, Baltimore's Carolyn Victorian and DJ Oji have reunited to bring us "He Loves Me". Oji and Carolyn have previously collaborated for King Street and POJI records and are picking up right where they left off by creating a spiritual anthem designed to uplift dance floors everywhere.

DJ Oji's Original Vocal Mix uses a chunky bassline and a buildup of keys, strings, and horns to create a driving and energetic production. His Dubstramental uses vocal drops over the music to build to a peak before finishing out the track.

Richard Payton's 95 North vocal version uses a driving keyboard and bass rhythm along with piano embellishments to create a smoother track to go under Carolyn's soaring vocals. The 95 North Raw Dub is just that - a simple keyboard/bass pattern with piano drops here and there along with scattered vocals. The 95 North Smooth Dub is more musical and builds up to the ad libs from the 2nd half of the vocal version.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Carolyn Victorian is a Bronx, NY/East Orange, NJ native and former Atlantic Records artist who has been in the house music scene for more than 10 years. Influences by Nancy Wilson, Carmen McCrae, Sarah Vaughn, and Joe Williams gave Carolyn her strong aura and sassy no non-sense lyrical content. Carolyn also attributes her lyrical abilities to her God-given gift to write poetry. Her voice has graced over 20 releases including "Try My Love" and "Set Me Free" with the Soul Providers as well as "Little Black Samba", "He's My DJ", and "Everything You Want" with DJ Oji.

DJ Oji is a long time veteran of the underground house music scene.
