Jamz is the brand new r&b selection for da lovers out there…
With a musical background that includes: Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire, Lauryn Hill, The Roots and Alicia Keys r&b crooner Christon Gray made some interesting gems that caught our attention. In 2011 he released the project titled Even With Evil With Me from which we chose Isle Of You.
We posted something ’bout DJ Quik on Beyond The Rhythm . Compton producer/emcee teamed up with neighborhood group 2nd II None and r&b singer El Debarge to release the single Hand In Hand in 1998. Always fresh!!!!
The next track is a musical collage of two hip hop tracks by Chance The Rapper and Kendrick Lamar, thoughtfully produced by U.K poducer Felix Joseph and performed by the sultry voice of U.K r&b songstress Elli Ingram. Elli and Felix introduce us the single Cannabutter Kisses. If you like this sound,maybe you can download Elli Ingram’s Sober EP
Louisville native L.Young is a new entry on scratchtheblock.com. Recently we stumbled upon Love Is A Verb a smooth romantic ballad with a catchy sound and above all a very impressive voice! Last year “L” released his r&b album ReVerb , so check it out and support the artist
Now , we wanna give ya some old school r&b tasteful flow with a supa-dupa-dope remix version cared by legendary beatmakers Poke & Tone aka Trackmasters. Here you are Underneath The Stars by Mariah Carey. The original track is included on Mariah’s fifth album titled Daydream. It’s always a great experience listening to Trackmasters solid beats.
Do you remember The Product G&B? Mmmh…Not at all? Maria Maria by Carlos Santana is surely familiar. The man that performed that track is Marvin Moore, leader of the r&b group The Product G&B . As solo artist he dropped an interesting track called It’s Been A Long Time , probably a lil bit mainstream in its essence but surely so impressive considering Marvin’s vocal skill.
Jump in the 1997 when the princess of r&b Mary J Blige dropped Share My World. We chose the sumptuous track titled Get To Know You Better masterfully produced by Bryce Wilson (also member of neo-soul group Groove Theory) that used the sample of Stevie Wonder single called My Cherie Amour. MUST HAVE!
OVO Records artist, PARTYNEXTDOOR is a young r&b singer that is earning his stripes with downtempo,seductive gems that until now convinced us! His last effort is titled Persian Rugs, a super-smooth and catchy track.
In 1993 Prince Be and Dr. Giggles made some really impressive r&b tunes under the moniker of P.M Dawn. Do ya remember Looking Through Patient Eyes? Gotdamn it’s an oldie but goldie must have that caresses softly your soul!
R&B veteran crooner, Tank recently released his last effort, titled You’re My Star,produced by himself. The mid-tempo track will be included on Tank sixth upcoming album called Stronger.
