Rarely post links to mixes but this is my first Friday without the folks at Tonic – so I wanted to pick up a few R&B Mixes, including the one that’s keeping me dancing this evening.
Without the R&B Fridays pickings I’ve gotten so used to (although there was talk of changing up the theme in the few weeks running up to my leaving), I thought I’d dig out some alternative options.
Just released yesterday, it includes a mix of new and classic tracks from Jon B, Brandy, 702, Trey Songz – 17 in all.
Full tracklist available here.
Second Friday Mix is a Timbaland medly that came through Matt a few months back: Hardfur(?)’s Mix 007: Timbaland. I’ll be playing these back to back this evening – Aaliyah, Jay-Z, Ginuwine, Missy Elliot, 34 tracks to get your Friday going.
More new than classic in these, featuring tracks from Lloyd, Rick Ross, The-Dream, Drake, Tyga – pretty much current R&B hip-hop royalty. R&B is as good as it used to be and they do make ’em like they used to. Discuss.
And the one that started it all for me – no embed for this one I’m afraid – Dummy Mix 84 // Brenmar. Until this point, I was all about making my own R&B playlists, but Brenmar changed my mind. Mya, Bobby Valentino, Nivea, Montell Jordan and more.
Back to the indie next time.
