I rarely put together a sample session based on one album. The last time I compiled such a mix was for Kanye West’s ‘A Twisted Dark Fantasy‘. That wound up becoming one of my favorite mixes. This one is filled with soulful funk, as well as some of that Electronica feel that’s gaining more and more traction in today’s ‘Hip Hop and R&B’Pop’, as I like to call it.
This one starts off with a nice Old School House feel. It flows into some electronica, journeys through some Funk, until it smooths out on some soul. Hope you enjoy. GrantLOVE.
