As I’ve said before, I’m a 70’s baby and I love 80’s music.  This mix features my favorite era in R&B.  While I was a 10 year old eating my Mr. T cereal and watching Miami Vice on Friday nights; my 20 year old Sister was hitting DC clubs and dancing to some of the songs featured on this mix.  While I was never old enough to club in the 80’s myself, I lived vicariously through my big Sister.  She’d show me the latest dances and I’d watch and think, “I just can’t wait to be grown.”  I knew what music was hot by the albums and cassettes my sister would buy.    Those albums are now a major part of my record collection today and those memories are the inspiration behind Clubbin’ in the 80’s.

This mix is my thank you to all of you in the DJ BeTray family.  Thank you for your support as we approach my 1 year anniversary of DJ BeTray.com.  Please enjoy this mix and bump it at your next party! Love!

While We Were Swinging

While we were swinging to new jack swing in the late 80’s and early 90’s, some R&B slow jams released at the time were getting very little love.  As Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Teddy Riley’s productions dominated the R&B Top 10; artists like Jamm, Eric Gable Meli’sa Morgan, Liz Hogue, Deon Estus,  and Alyson Williams struggled to hold their billboard spots.  Please enjoy this compilation of songs from that period.  I know many of you have been searching for some of these tunes for years.
