1980's Vintage RnB


Here you will find vintage R&B music from the 1980's (and early 1990's). At the time, keyboard sequencing technology was relatively new and R&B music producers and keyboard players were first experimenting with the new technology and applying it to R&B music. Consequently the music has a distinct signature sound as a result of the new keyboard and drum machine technology and techniques.
