Sweet Female Attitude began life in 1996 when music manager Mike Powell, artist and DJ Shine MC and the seventeen year old Leanne Brown began writing music together.
After an initial White Label release in 1999 by Milkk Records, a subsidiary of Reverb; the Sunship mix of Flowers began to gain popularity in the London UK Garage scene. Flowers was subsequently released by Warner Music Germany in April 2000 selling in excess of two hundred thousand copies, peaking at number two on the UK Singles Chart bringing the group a UK and European club tour, TV and radio interviews, performances on Top of the Pops, MTV, T4, Radio One’s One Big Sunday, amongst many other. They were also nominated for a Brit Award.
Flowers has been included on several Pure Garage compilation albums and is widely regarded as being an Old School Garage anthem. Their songs “Nothing To Lose”, “Dreamin’” and a remix of “Flowers” by Cutfather & Joe were added to the song list of the Xbox 360 game, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2.
A later mix of Flowers by the DJ and Producer ‘Jamie Duggan’ would be released on Universal Music in 2009 and a release by Sam Divine and Curtis Gabriel is planned for the Summer 2015.
