With the new year coming up, Dutch DJ Joe Stone thought it would be nice to close things off with a special edition of his Sound Of Stone podcast. So, for this exclusive New Year’s edition he’s mixed up a sweet set of 90s ‘new jack swing’ tunes.Click here for our Ten For The Road interview with Joe Stone
We could have expected Joe Stone to drop a mix like this. Earlier hits ‘The Party (This Is How We Do It)’ feat. Montell Jordan, ‘Man Enough’ and ‘Sublime’ already gave away his preference for those oldschool 90s R&B vibes. And, well, Joe Stone now goes for full disclosure, presenting loads of those classics in one amazing mix.
“Going into the new year I wanted to take time to reflect on a legendary era in R&B called new jack swing. It originated out of early hip hop and sampling was used a lot, especially in the beats. Add some catchy R&B vocals to that and the hits were born. This very danceable style almost had the tempo of house and contained a lot of energy. Ideal to get the party started, and as I noticed when mixing it all together, also perfect to end the year 2016 in style. Best wishes everybody!” — JOE STONE
