"I made a mix for 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, and 98, nearly 100 songs on each"


  

          

I actually need to figure out a name for it when I finish, but I'm going to do the same for each year in the 90's.

Each one has as many songs on it as the year represented...and they're titled as such. So 93 for 93 = 93 songs from 1993.

I definitely mix it up with the main Rap and R&B radio hits, the club hits, some Regional classics, and plenty songs that are never played now, but just sound like the year that it came out. I purposely leave off some of the huge hits (Gangsta's paradise, Breakdown, Monifah "Touch it," Whoop there it is). Some songs are only played for 1-2 bars, while some are played for two full verses.

I think it's wild that you can listen to each one and tell how much different the overall sound was in each year. Someone who wasn't there may assume that 93 and 95 sounded the same, but it's far from the case.

Feel free to share to everyone!

Here's the links, and a quick line for each one:

"93 for 93" - https://soundcloud.com/djrtistic/93for93
One of the best overall years. The West Coast finally matched the East Coast in overall bangers, yet the East was on fire. Slow jams were at it's absolute peak...listen to the last 15-20 minutes, and it's amazing how many classic slow jams came out that year. New Jack Swing had phased out, and upbeat R&B was finding it's way.

"94 for 94" - https://soundcloud.com/djrtistic/94-for-94-djr-tisticcom
Rap was really priming at this point, and this year had great balance as a whole. The happy New Jack Swing sound was completely dead, and all the upbeat R&B songs had a Hip Hop edge to them.

"95 for 95" - https://soundcloud.com/djrtistic/dj-r-tistic-95-for-95-djr-tisticcom
This year was purely enjoyable, and just feels like a barbecue. R&B and Rap collabos were starting to become the norm at this point. The West had another strong year, with the Bay having it's best year. The South slowly started to get some shine at this point as well.

"96 for 96" - https://soundcloud.com/djrtistic/dj-r-tistic-96-for-96-djr-tisticcom
Easily the most hostile year. Folks may act like Pac was the only part of the West Coast vs East Coast beef, but they forget that Cube/Westside Connection was just as important in the feud. Those Rap/R&B collabos were at it's peak, with almost every major hit having a R&B hook, or either a Rap verse on it.

"97 for 97" - https://soundcloud.com/djrtistic/97for97
Many purists saw this as the weakest year in the 90's, but it's when commercial Rap was starting to get shine at a whole new level. Bad Boy easily owned it, while No Limit was bringing the South into the game. R&B was holding steady. Neo Soul was starting to become dominant at this point.

"98 for 98" - https://soundcloud.com/djrtistic/98for98
The Jiggy era was in full effect on the R&B side, but the Boom Bap made a return. The South was starting to blossom, while the West remained stagnant. The sexual slow jams weren't nearly as strong as the party cuts.

Check them out!

Do you have any for 00-04?

I still hear songs from that era. Some bars even give those songs
burn during prime time (which I peg at 2 hours before last call).

Maybe people are accepting those records as great pop songs now?

You'd know better than me.

It's all songs from like 01-03, along with a few okder tracks, and a few SUPER regional tracks. And yeah, as time goes on, that era is starting to get some love for sure. Some of the super commercial music from then sounds bland now, but plenty that's still dope!

The FAMU mix is on my soundcloud page - www.DJR-Tistic.com

That transition from Kid N Play style danceable rap to mean mug rap would be very interesting to cover. IMO.

Those are going to take a LOT of research and playing around with.

Even these mixes are much harder than it might seem...it was so many different styles each year, and the hardest part is actually just dealing with the wide range of BPM's and making each transition and set make sense.

The thing about 90-92 is that I didn't start listening to Rap until Summer 93...I didn't really get familiar until December of 92. Sounds crazy, but my older cousin from Florida introduced me to Snoop and Dre that December in 92, when the Dre Day video was on.

So I am gonna be talking to all my folks who were there...including y'all! If you notice, I don't just use the main hits from each year...I use songs that you ONLY knew if you were there, such as a Rufus Black, Tracey Lee, or Jayo Felony. So I want 90-92 to be the same, not just using the obvious Kris Kross, Humpty Hump, Around the way girl type of tracks.
