Onra & Lexis - Throw'em Up

This upload features tracks from Miss Jones, Zhane, KREUZ , Yvette Michelle, Sista and more.

This summer, French producer Onra & 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 concept of this mix is about the way people used to dance in those videos around 93 to 96. 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, 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)

THROW'EM UP!

Sweet groove man! Nothing like some chill 90s r&b to ease my mind.

I was planning on doing the same type of mix as this last month. I didn't pull it together because of the holidays, but I def enjoyed this! You had some songs in there I didn't even think about.
