Released: 10th June 2002.
21-year old North Londoner Naomi McLean is one of the most talked about female artists of 2002. Previous to releasing her debut solo single "It Takes More", which reached the top 10 in the charts, Ms Dynamite was mainly known for the work she had done featuring on the Social Circles production of "Boo".
Despite being made an offer of studying Social Anthropology at university Ms Dynamite has made the right decision and made the microphone work for her. Whether you wish to class her still as a garage MC or just as a singer or even both, it is more than evident that Ms Dynamite has got talent beyond comprehension.
The album as a whole is about the grim life of the streets, and also on the other hand the album reminds us what love and self respect can do to overshadow this. For the women the album has a few pointers, ie. self confidence, getting rid of those partners who are doing nothing for you. For the males - it should inspire you to look a little deeper within yourselfs. For the children it should utter the essential element that is lacking in society today, respect for those who look after you, parents and other relatives.
The album has been touched by the magical fingers of Salamm Remi, (the producer) and also comprises of international artists like Barrington Levi, Keon Bryce and Kymani Marley. Dynamite does not wish to be looked on as a superstar, it's more about her lyrical content, which speaks for itself.
"A Little Deeper" is more than a little deeper, personally I don't think that things could be any more deeper than this album. More than worth buying.
