About the show

Playing tracks by

Bobby Brown, Heavy D & The Boyz, New Edition, Bell Biv Devoe, Al B. Sure and more.

This mixtape is a tribute to the unique New Jack Swing era between 1987 and the mid-1990's that paved the way to r&b as we know it today, combining the vocal harmonies of soul with the rhythms of hip hop.

Teddy Riley can be credited with inventing and popularizing the formula, eventually co-producing Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" which was heavily influenced by the New Jack style. However, other gifted producers like Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and LA & Babyface slipped just as many jams into the top of the charts.

These were the years of hi-top fades, baggy pants and the running man. In the 21st century we might be starting to forget about Guy or Bobby Brown, but anyone who listens to the mix will realize these productions were way ahead of their time, and the amount of hits produced was truly prolific. Viva el Nuevo Jack!
