Makin’ Moves Records are proud to present another soulful gem of track with our friends from Italy. Producers DaSoul (who already has a number of hits on Makin’ Moves) & Niko M have come together to produce this track for the legendary singer/ songwriter Ms Stephanie Cooke. Whom we are honured and excited to have on our label.
Stephanie Cooke is a singer/songwriter whose roots are based in urban Newark, NJ. Born and raised there, she grew up in church like many in the music industry, and found her beginnings in the choir and in small groups as she developed her singing and arranging skills.For much of the past 20 years she has made her home as an artist in dance music recording songs on many labels around the globe. And to this day, still provides us with music that inspires, uplifts and enriches the mind, heart and spirit.
We hope you enjoy this as much as we do.

From early on the locals loved Manoo’s sets and it wast long before people from far and wide were coming to hear him. He now travels the world playing but still makes time to keep his residency at Ambassade club.
In 2001, Manoo took his first steps into production and started the Rodamaal project with his friends Alex and Rocco. Their first release “Love Island on Jazz-up Records was picked up by a lot of top djs. This furthered their reputation and led Ben Watt (Everything but the Girl) to sign them to his label Buzzin’ Fly Records.
