Classic Track taken from Guru’s Jazzmatazz, Vol. 3: Streetsoul

As the title seems to suggest, this volume featured a blend of Soul with R&B. The decline in Jazz inflections that made Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1 popular continued on this release (the decline was already noticeable on Jazzmatazz, Vol. 2: The New Reality.) According to Billboard’s music charts, any aspersions levied by music critics against the album had little (if any) impact on its performance in the marketplace. Streetsoul outperformed previous entries significantly; it peaked at #32 and #8 on the Billboard 200 and “Top R&B / Hip Hop Albums” charts respectively.

As with previous releases, a host of guest performers were featured on this recording. Most of the artists are stalwarts of the neo soul and R&B scene. First-time appearances in the series were made by several contemporary acts, including Amel Larrieux, Angie Stone, Bilal, Craig David, Donell Jones, Erykah Badu, and The Roots. Veterans featured on this release include Herbie Hancock and Isaac Hayes.

I bought my first official hip hop items back in the late 80’s and ended up with a room filled of classic hip hop. Some years ago my girlfriend, now wife, proposed me to come out with my collection and share it with the world. So I did and was born.

I will randomly take albums and items from my collection and post it on my website hoping that it brings memories to you guys as well as lots of fantastic hip hop has been produced since the Bronx gave birth to the hip hop movement…

All items featured in the movie are taken from my personal hip hop collection. In the late eighties on a local schoolyard in Antwerp, Belgium, a hip hop cassette was swapped between friends. It would change my life forever with a personal collection of over 11.000 hip hop tapes, cd’s, LP’s & memorabilia!!

With collecting all this hip hop I try to preserve the culture and pay respect to the pioneers who really deserve it.

On my platform I do not only give credit to the pioneers, but I also want to provide a nice mix of classic with ‘quality hip hop’ which is still out there when you look for it. There are lots of great nowadays artists out there who don’t get the credit and promo.

If you’re in need of promo feel free to contact me here
