DJ Commish & DJ Prince - "New Jack Swing Vol. 1"

Listening to the songs on this mixtape make me wish I had a pair of Slick overalls (One strap hanging off, of course!) and a pair of "Jodeci Boots". I'd throw them on and do the Running Man in the middle of my living room like it's 1990.

Being an 80's baby, this music takes me back! Like, "Bamboo earrings; at least two pair." and Z. Cavaricci jeans. This was a time when fellas were getting NO play if they couldn't dance. Playing the wall was never an option. When you listen to this music you'll understand why! The fusion of R&B vocals over Hip-Hop breaks, Pop synths and keys, etc. gets into your bones. 

DJ Commish and DJ Prince loaded this compilation up with classics. From Troop to Al B. Sure! to SWV to Bobby Brown.....New Jack Swing vol. 1 covers this incredible era of music in a big way. All the 25+ readers out there, you NEED this download! If you're younger than 25 and you don't know much about New Jack Swing, you NEED this download! You can't talk about the "Golden Era" of Hip-Hop and not include New Jack Swing in the conversation. Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Morris Day, Teddy Riley, Babyface and a handful of others truly set the tone of Black life in the late 80's and early 90's.
