New Jersey Underground Part 5 (1991-1997)


It’s with a certain amount of sadness that I post this batch of Jersey tracks today. In light of his recent death, Tony D’s beats bring out the nostalgia in me. Many of his beats were classic and remind me of my own personal glory days back in the early/mid 90’s. Ah. to be young, sprung and hip again. To this day, there exists a large archive of unreleased material produced by the 16-stone Italian stallion. Perhaps one of the small contemporary labels putting out unreleased music from the golden era can arrange to give proper treatment and exposure to this undiscovered treasure trove. Tracks produced by Tony include numbers 1,2,3,5,6,(I think), 8.9.10, and 13. What we have here is mostly Trenton material, but some artists are from Jersey City, Newark, and Camden too.
