It was, in my opinion, the year that signified the start of the end for New Jack Swing. Cover Star D'Angelo released the seminal "Brown Sugar" LP, whilst Hip Hop - Soul made its way onto the scene via Uptown Records. Mary J Blige stepped up. Faith Evans. When they coined the term "Neo-Soul", I believe they actually meant a return to the ethos that Soul music had back from the 70's. Live, Organic Instruments; Social Commentary; Soulful voices and songwriting.
This mix showcases the changing face of Soul and R&B that year, 1995, and features D'Angelo, Faith Evans, Mary J Blige, plus some of the classics of the year from Deborah Cox; Solo; Groove Theory and some little known gems including Vertical Hold who was a band who had a vocalist, who went on to bigger things, named Angie Stone.
Hope this takes you back, Grizz returns on Sunday with some more hot music from the Vaults!!!
