Contemporary R&B

Dawn Robinson from En Vogue. Raphael Saadiq. Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad. Now that's a supergroup! It's too bad they only made this one album, but they sure made the most of their moment. "Dance Tonight" is the all time new jack/jill classic, the rest of the record is laid back, funky neo-soul that's somehow classic and ageless.

Nurse with Wound

Soliloquy for Lilith

1988

Experimental

Easily one of Steven Stapleton's masterpieces, Soliloquy for Lilith has nothing to do with industrial noise or exotica cut-ups. Instead, it's a collection of side-long drones which sound like slowly spiraling down a metallic abyss. Truly strange and beautiful music that you inhabit rather than listen to.
