This summer, good homies French producer Onra and Lexis, founder of Music Is My Sanctuary, got together in Montreal and recorded a mix inspired by a period that was really influential for both: mid-90′s R&B club classics.
The idea behind the selections: As the title suggests, the whole concept of this mix is about the way people used to dance in those videos around 93 to 96. It’s when people stopped doing the new jack swing kind of dancing and throwing up the hands in the air with that nonchalant baller attitude. Go back to videos from these years and you’ll everyone was doing the “throw’em up”.
So, the “rules” they gave themselves were simple: 1) the mix begins at the point when New Jack ended 2) the mix finishes around ’96 when a producer named Tim Mosley completely changed the R&B landscape. (that will be vol.2) 3) MC’s featuring on R&B tracks were ok, but not the other way around. 4) Only one selection per artist (that was tough)
Tracklist 01. Brandy – I Wanna Be Down Feat. MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Yoyo 02. Chanté Moore – This Time (Allstar Club Mix) 03. Intro – Funny How Time Flies 04. London Jones – Joy 05. Miss Jones – Don’t Front 06. Keith Sweat – Twisted 07. Monifah – I Miss You Feat. Heavy D 08. Immature – We Got It (Marley Marl Remix) 09. Horace Brown – Taste Your Love 10. Alphonzo – Just The Way 11. Sista – Brand New (Mr. Dalvins Ferran Mix) 12. New Edition – Change Your Mind 13. Aaron Hall – Curiosity 14. Blackstreet – This Is How We Roll 15. Devante – Gin & Juice 16. TLC – Creep 17. Groove Theory – It’s Alright 18. Mary J. Blige – Everyday It Rains 19. Usher – Think Of You 20. Jodeci – Bring on da’ funk 21. SWV – You’re the One 22. Aaliyah – Are You Ready? 23. Soul For Real – Candy Rain 24. Yvette Michelle – Everyday and every night 25. Kreuz – Party All Night 26. R.Kelly – Thank God It’s Friday 27. Zhane – Vibe 28. Sweet Sable – For Old Time’s Sake
