D-Bo x Esco "New York State Of Mind: The 90s Sound" (Mix)


Brooklyn Radio’s King D-Bo & Esco team up for “New York State of Mind: The 90’s Sound,” a special mix representing the classic New York Hip Hop sound associated with producers from New York City in the early to late 1990s, such as DJ Premier, Pete Rock, KRS-One, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, EPMD, RZA, Marley Marl, Large Professor, Prince Paul and Scott La Rock. This golden age New York based sound is characterized by skeletal beats, samples cribbed from hard rock or soul tracks, complex wordplay and punchlines. Another definitive characteristic of this sound is the ability to sample different beats from a wide variety of sources ranging from jazz, funk and soul to rock & roll. This compilation is a collection of some of the rarest Hip Hop songs from the 90’s by some of the best Rap artists of that time from New York City, which truly represent the authentic, 90’s New York Hip Hop sound. In the mix, you'll hear tracks from E. Bros, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Nas, Godfather Don, Grand Puba, People Without Shoes, N.B.A., Big L, Bee Why, and more. You can download HERE
