SoulNRnB's Great Producers 11 - The Neptunes

Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams.

I first came across these guys work through thier Hip hop productions for Snoop, Busta Rhymes, Jay-z and many more, but soon came to hear thier more soulful side.

They were discovered by Teddy Riley, whose studio was close to Pharrell's school and through working with Riley, Pharrell went on to write a verse for Wreckx-N-Effect's hit "Rump Shaker". The duo then went on to work heavily with Kelis, producing her first album Kaleidoscope and Usher's "You Don't Have to Call" as well as the host of big name Hip Hop tunes.

Over the coming years the guys have produced a host of influential tunes in various genres, as well as setting up group N*E*R*D. This mix concentrates on thier soul/rnb tunes, of which there are many quality tracks.

What makes thier inclusion in my producer picks a no-brainer is the fact they have thier own SOUND. You know a Neptunes production. Its the Neptunes sound. This mix includes rare and popular productions side by side, all with thier famous "Star Trak" sound, blinging all the way to the bank.

Grizz back next week with more quality. Weve got something real special up our sleeves for Xmas, so stay focused!!!
