DJ Ridym - Old Skool 80's Volume 2


Welcome listeners to the Soul Mixtape and this time out we're gonna take a trip in our Delorean and head back to the glorious 80's for some timeless R&B classics.

The cover photo featuring Rene Moore and Angela Winbush acts as the perfect road sign to let you know you've arrived at your destination. The duo faithfully known as Rene & Angela recorded just 3 albums before their break up in '86 but despite this Angela went on to have a long and successful career into the 90's. I suggest if you get the chance check out the video of It's the real thing you'll see a very young Don Cheadle bustin' some ridiculous dance moves that certainly got me laughing I guess we all had to start somewhere!

Other artists in this mix such as Atlantic Star, The Funkmasters, Juicy and The Controllers all contributed to making this the decade for R&B and Boogie (we'll not mention the new jack swing!)

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did and look out for volume 3 next time. Jah Bless
