Swang 2

Volume 2 of a series of 60 minute mixes by BobaFatt, looking back at the time when Hip Hop and R&B first hooked up and formed that "Swang".
New Jack Swing. Swingbeat. Hip Hop R&B Soul. Call it what you will..

Haircuts were high, slanted, faded and cut with 163 tramlines minimum, clothes were hella baggy, trainers were extra extra fly, and everyone knew how to do the running man. Everyone.

Teddy Riley pretty much ran everything, LA & Babyface had a good punt, and producers like Jam & Lewis occasionally dipped their toe in too.

Snares were tough, preset orchestra hit noises were compulsory and the vibes were lovely.
Yep yep.

It went a lil' sum'n like this. Swang it!...
