Onra & Lexis - Throw Em' Up vol.2

Onra & Lexis - Throw Em' Up vol.2

In the summer of 2012, Onra & Lexis joined forces to tackle a project based on a music period they both love so much. That brief period from approximately ’93 to ’96: the New Jack Swing sound got dated and soulful club music became much closer to the Hip-Hop productions of the time to create this Urban R’n'B type of music.

We simply call this era the “Throw Em’ Up” period in reference to the way that everyone in clubs and videos was vibin’ to these tracks: just throw up both your arms and wave them around nonchalantly (if possible with a champagne glass). The selection rules we followed for Vol. 2 are simple: #1: Soul artists featuring MC’s are ok, but not the other way around. #2: All of the picks have to pass the “throw em’ up” dance test, which means: no New Jack Swing stuff, no Timbaland because although Timbo is a genius it’s really a different kind of sound which shaped the late 90′s / early 2000′s sound.

As I see Onra, I just went to mention a new project from him with Buddy Sativa, which is named "Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo", it has something from Sun Ra and The Art Ensemble of Chicago in my opinion, and went out on the fantastic label All City Dublin...I think it is worth to pick one's ear...
