SoulNRnB's Modern Soul Artists go back to the 80's


Some of the latest and greatest current soul artists took you back to the 70's with a mix I posted a while back, now its time for the 80's to get the modern soul treatment!

As with the last mix, the choice of tunes covered here are eclectic, spanning pop and r&b, but all are given a twist that takes them to another level. Foreign Exchange crew represented fully here, with contributions from Phonte, Nicolay and Zo! (Whose Just Visiting 3 release on the 12th is high on my priorities). Then we have a consumate Jazz rework of Cindi Laupers "Time after time" from Cassandra Wilson, the much loved Aaries covering a classic Janet/Jam & Lewis tune, and Anthony David's excellent version of a Tears for Fears track.

Like I said, eclectic for this blog!!

Check it out, enjoy, and Grizz will be back with normal programming next week!
