She Knows is a four-track EP from Louisiana�s Mena. The vibe here is very much in the early 80s soul beat ballad vein.
Teaming up with Hip-Hop producer Carlos Stephens, Mena and Stephens create sounds that evoke a fusion between Hip-Hop, gospel, R&B, and Jazz. The slick, classy �She Knows� is a laid back groover, �Hand In Hand� is a more urgent dancer that has touches of classic club soul. Highlights also include ?�Want Me� with its slowly building string samples and rhythms that kick in at just the right time and ?�Us Two� which is a must-hear for all jazz lovers. This album takes the Jazz sound and injects a healthy dose of soul. The result is 4 tracks that would probably be perfect for a high-tech lounge orbiting high above Earth in the distant future.
