DJ SPINNA Strange Games and Things Vol 5

September 12, 2010

DJ Spinna is back at it again with the latest installment of “Strange Games and Things”. Volume 5 has yet to drop, but you can enjoy the stream in the mean time. Check BBE for the release!

-THE BAG MESSENGER

The Strange Games… series which began in the summer of 1997, represents
the blueprint for modern R&B and rap music. It joins the dots between 70s soul, 80s rare groove and 90s mass market hip hop. This compilation contains a wide variety of styles of tracks, from classic dance-floor fillers as well as lesser known delights. A more accessible diggers delight if you wish with an emphasis on quality track and not just songs worth having for a 2 second sample.
Featuring a much more worldly selection than its predecessors – tracks by the
multi platinum selling War to Sylvia ( Founder of Sugarhill Records) sit side by
side with world music underground icons like C.K. Mann and Francisco Aguabella.
This volume is the 5th in a series of compilations that appears to have the widest appeal of all BBEs compilations and proves to be even better by the fact that there is a bonus mixed CD by the one and only Dj Spinna!
