Throwback Track: Superwoman Pt. II - Lil Mo ft. Fabolous

Speed: 96 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Okay, so this track isn’t that old. But it was one of the first vinyl singles I got when I started dj’ing, and I put this on the first mixtape I ever made. And it was literally a mixtape because I actually recorded mixes on cassettes back in 2002, when all the hot tracks were in the 95 to 100 bpm range. Trust me - you can’t go wrong when your beat uses a similar electronic sound to the JBs’ Blow Your Head and revolves around a single note riff that switches between two octaves. Will people dance to this song in the club? Not anymore. But for me, it’s nostalgia.

I’ll post up an MP3 link if/when I find one.
