Hydrogen Rockers featuring Mayte (2001) Musica UK 12″
In 2001 Mayte was post-Prince, the dissolution of their marriage finalized in 2000. In 2001 she teamed up with Hydrogen Rockers to record “Musica”. Hydrogen Rockers are Paul and Ben Harris who later, with Steve Smith, released the Grammy winning Best Dance Single “Days Go By” as Dirty Vegas. There were no awards in the wings for “Musica”. This record really isn’t my cup of tea, not a fan of this “tech house” style of music. Not really sure what exactly Mayte’s contribution to this even was. The vocals are nearly unintelligible and buried deep within the “mix”. Of course, I bought it sight unheard because it listed Mayte on the label. I suppose past performance is no guarantee of future results…
