Welcome to episode #8 of the 90s State of Mind podcast - a collaborative project between 4ever in Electric Dreams and Blue-in-Green:RADIO. This podcast series sees Imran (London, UK) and Rhonda (California, USA) delve into some of their favourite releases from the 90s and this week, the pair revisit the debut album from Kelis, 'Kaleidoscope'.
Released in 1999, 'Kaleidoscope' was produced by Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo of The Neptunes making the album a breakout project for all three. Despite underperforming in the US, the album was a moderate success overseas receiving a gold certification in the UK. Spawning three singles including 'Caught Out There', 'Good Stuff' and 'Get Along With You', the album also held the distinction of ranking #391 in Rolling Stone's 2020 list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Blue-in-Green:RADIO is a London-based online internet radio station which celebrates 21st century soul, jazz, funk, Latin & hip-hop music.
As an accompaniment to Episode #36 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast - which saw the team delve into the nature of musical collaborations - we thought we'd supply you with a playlist of sorts featuring some of the tracks we spent the most time discussing throughout the episode. As always, let us know if there's anything we talk about that you vehemently disagree with or anything you feel we should have included within either of our two lists...
