Throwback Track: My Love is the Shhh! - Somethin' for the People

Speed: 63 bpm

The DJ’s Take: When this song was at the top of the charts back in 1997, I admit that I was not feeling it. But looking back, I was just a rebellious-minded suburban teen who thought he was too cool for school with his preference for Native Tongues hiphop. This is straight up grinding music that probably played a role in producing 3% of the nation’s high school class of 2015.

My Love is the Shhh! has probably been forgotten around the country, but if you’re spinning for a crowd of black people in their 30s, or at the end of the night as couples are pairing up for some early morning exercise, this is a solid option. I haven’t tried it out yet, but if you’re a dj with key adjust on your decks, try speeding this one up a little and blending it with Aaliyah’s Are You That Somebody for a solid late 90s baby-making mix.
