In preparation for Pockets Are Fat “90’s Tribute” party this this Friday DJ Akio has put together a mix from one of his favourite musical periods, The New Jack Swing era
New Jack Swing also known as swing beat is a fusion genre spearheaded by Teddy Riley and Bernard Belle that became popular from the late 1980s into the early 1990s. Its influence, along with hip hop, seeped into pop culture and was the definitive sound of the inventive black New York club scene.
Check out this funky old school mix & get ready to hear more sounds like these from the 90’s at Kitcheners (Braamfontein) on the 16th September 2016 (this Friday).
DJ Akio will be giving away a limited number of physical copies tomorrow at the door so miake sure you get there early but for now stream/download/share the mix below.
