Simplicity always works in pop music and there can be few more simple yet infectiously memorable hooks than the three girls from Surrey chanting "Step, step, step" on their delightful "Step To". Working with dubstep and UK garage maestro Jimmy James has paid off bigtime for the sistahs and "Step To" will surely be heard on numerous radio stations across the nation. Almost as good is the remix of "Breathe The Life". Originally recorded and released as a single in laid back jazz funk style, this new version, thanks to the electronic trickery of James, is a funky house floor-filler. There's even a praise song and a soulful ballad on this impressive EP to demonstrate that these ladies have the versatility to be around for the long haul. If you enjoy modern R&B you need to check out HopeGene.
