T.R.O.Y. & Certified Dope Apparel Present – Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 22

Friday, September 20th, 2013

It’s been a constant struggle to produce these lately, manly because I always feel I’m at an impasse with the selections. Is it too new sounding? Is it too dated? Is the quality of the mp3 good? Then of course, there is always, isn’t this track kinda played out by now?

I know it’s hard to believe, but I really do put in work selecting, sequencing and creating the overall package for your CD-r or iTunes. This time around T.R.O.Y. and Certified Dope Apparel bring you volume 22, a compilation that features a collection of tracks that we feel exemplifies just how great hip-hop has been, even if a few joints are slightly aged by now.

15+ years ago Ecko used to give mixtapes out with the purchase of their clothes. I never did rock much Ecko, but I made sure to rock those mixtapes. It was an ingenious idea by Mark Milecofsky Mark Ecko. Now 100 million dollars later you have Eckō Unltd. Not that we’re expecting to reach those levels but we feel we have something special with these 3 great collaborative shirts with Certified Dope. And of course, purchase or no purchase, we hope you enjoy our latest offering,  the Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 22 .

Vol. 22 takes us back in time, so extract the file, burn to a disc (56 mins total) or add to your playlist. Spread the word, spread the file and let’s celebrate hip-hop music.  I hope you enjoy Sounds Like The 90′s as much as I do creating them, even if it’s sometimes a challenge. –PhilaflavabomockbiggercousinmockbiggersologreymockbiggersolotankbiggerCLICK HERE TO ENTER STORE

T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 21

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

SLT90s 21-front

It’s been an awfully long time since we last dropped Sounds Like The 90′s, 586 days to be exact.

Moving forward I will be doing my best to produce this series every 6-8 weeks. It’s hard gathering select tracks because as many of you know, there just isn’t a lot of music these days that remind us of the 90s.

I make these compilations because it represents where we are today. It usually contains tracks that emphasize an era in which we all know will more than likely never be duplicated again.  Some tracks on these compilations contain contemporary music that might have a slight hint of that era. Others, well it may just contain an artist that was very relevant from the 90s. Overall, these are put together to showcase today’s music as a music time capsule.

So, whether you like one track, ten tracks or all of them, enjoy these compilations for what they are. While terms like “exclusives” have become extinct due to new age technology and the blogsophere, we do our best to hand pick relatively newer material.

Enjoy 21 and sorry for the wait.

T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 20

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Back with a 22 shot banger. Our biggest compilation to date and hopefully you’ll agree one of the best. On 20 you’ll hear the return of Tragedy, Cella Dwellas and Showbiz & A.G. as a group. Sean Price ripping the same beat found on the “Ultimate MC Rush” he once appeared on with Saukrates. Some Preem and Alchemist beats and of course the back end of the mix takes you into a chill state with the help of Blu, Superstar Quamallah and Willie Evans Jr (formerly Asamov). Shots to both dirt_dog and Strategy for the help as always. –Philaflava

T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90s Vol. 18

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

A little over three months have past since the last volume and the only reasoning for that is the music. Towards the end of the year and the beginning of the year the music industry slows down and resets. During that hiatus there were quite a few tracks definitely worthy of your attention. So while this version may not contain the newest of the new, it does showcase what I feel is a nice lead-in, to what may be a pretty solid year in hip-hop. We got one of the newest groups of out Philly, Writtenhouse. New Wu of course. Two of the most promising emcees bringing back authentic NY hip-hop, Meyhem Lauren and Action Bronson. We got two Focus tribute tracks, one to Ali Shaheed Muhammad and the other to RZA. We got your Black Thought fix, along with an extremely dope J. Period remix featuring Rakim Allah. There is definitely something for everyone on Vol. 18.

Thanks to all the people that have supported this project over the years. Props to Dirt_Dog and Strategy for helping–as always. Shouts to the entire T.R.O.Y. squad and our readers. Download link and front cover are below, back cover and tracklist after the jump. – Philaflava

T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90s Vol. 17

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

The last volume before the new year. While it was a pretty good year in hip-hop, there wasn’t an overwhelming amount of throwback tracks, thus us delivering you just 5 volumes of Sounds Like The 90s in ’10.

As many of you know, we do these compilations to capture an era that we all love. Some tracks do sound like the 90s, while others are artists from that era doing their thing. A few of these tracks have been out for awhile now, some even debuted on this site, but here is a tightly sequenced mix for the holidays. I wouldn’t normally put 3 tracks by one artist on a mix, but Kanye killed it this year (all 3 tracks not on the LP) and Q-Tip is responsible for 2 of those gems. There was no way I wasn’t putting these on for you guys.

Thanks to all the people that have supported over the years. We’ll continue to do these and we’re always keeping an open mind, so if you got something, don’t hesitate to link us. Props to Dirt_Dog and Strategy for helping–as always. Shouts to the entire T.R.O.Y. squad and our readers. Download link and front cover are below, back cover and tracklist are after the jump. Happy Holidays! –Philaflava

Sounds Like The 90s Vol. 15 (August ’10)

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Sorry for the delay, but I mentioned earlier this year I rather not rush this until I feel there is enough quality on these. Unfortunately, that means some of these tracks are dated by now but as a whole Volume 15 should flow nicely. Once again props to Dirt_Dog for cookin’ up some marvelous shit with the cover. He has been killing it since he took over art duties and he has some more in store as this series grows. Also I have to give a special shout out to Strategy for supplying the tags on this. As always, your feedback is appreciated. These are not mixed. There is no “DJ” skills being displayed, I’m just capturing new music in hopes of giving you all something to listen to, to talk about and to add to your iPods. I happen to think the Pharoahe track “Shine” is real dope if you eliminate the hideous hook. Peace and try to enjoy! –Philaflava
