Dj Spinna Tribute To Kashif Mix

Dj Spinna Tribute To Kashif Mix

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global r&b chart, 1st in the global soul chart, 1st in the global funk chart and 1st in the global disco chart.

Harlem born, Brooklyn bred, orphaned by adolescence & self proclaimed prodigy by his teenaged years, Michael Jones PKA Kashif Saleem's story is that of a miracle. By the age of 16 he joined & toured with B.T. Express. After a two album stint with the band he was let go as a result of his overly ambitious work ethic - he outpaced the band's expectations. Without hesitation Kashif surpassed being a session musician thrusting into an active music career acting as producer, arranger, composer & performer for future stars & established artists including Whitney Houston, Evelyn Champagne King, Fatback Band, Melba Moore, Average White Band, George Benson & Bill Withers. Kashif played an integral role in shaping the New York post-disco R&B sound, & heralded what many today label Boogie & Modern Soul music. He kept R&B progressive, dance floor friendly & edgy throughout the early 80's by embracing the latest technology. I'm blessed to have met him years go, he's a true innovator. . May he RIP!

I love this tribute... awesone work, DJ Spinna. Hey my heart dropped when I heard "Your Style" it took me in a time machine to that first love in the 80s. Also loved being reintroduced to Mel'ssa's High Fashion. Wonderful tribute.
