For my November Vocalo mix, I decided to grab all the neo-soul jams that I rarely play out and put them together. The artists might sound familiar, but some of their songs get overlooked and I wanted to showcase them in this mix. Enjoy.

Groovin Cover

“Groovin: From Aaliyah to Zhane” is a collection of 90′s R&B jams that were either created or sung by women. From songs that are familiar to ones that rarely got played, this mix showcases the vocal talents and the creativity of that era. I remember watching most of the videos of these songs on The Box (or channel 8 as us Milwaukee folk called it).

So, if names like SWV, Zhane, Mary J, Mokenstef, The Ghost Town DJs, Faith Evans, Erykah Badu, Brandy, Nuttin Nyce, Janet Jackson and Les Nubians ring a bell, hit play and groove out for the next 70 minutes.

It’s clean for radio play (wink wink) so download here.
