MIX MONDAYS: ‘Nothing But A Number’ (Tribute Mix)

Aaliyah in the AM is always a good idea, and this morning is no different, well a little. This time around, California based DJ ESSNTL creates a mix for the late singer, including some of her more known tracks, like One in a Million, and a few lesser known tracks. It’s amazing how her music still lights a fire for so many people, check out the dedication and artist statement penned by the artist below, and press play.

Dear Aaliyah “Babygirl” Haughton,

It’s been 13 years since you’ve left and we miss you more and more each day. Your music, voice and style continues to transcend into people’s lives everyday. We still miss you and will never forget everything that you brought and still continue to bring to this world. May you continue to rest in peacefully Heaven. Forever in our hearts.

I’ve been crafting this project (artwork, curation, mixing) for a better part of a month and I’m glad to say that it’s something that means so much to me and I hope everyone will enjoy. This project was created to showcase how much Aaliyah’s work influenced a generation of upcoming artists and producers as well as visual artists designers and more. My aim was to create a one of a kind tribute through music that spans through many genres, fusing R&B, Soul, Future Sound, Bass, House & Hip-Hop together into one very cohesive package that not only pays homage to Ms. Daughton but keeps her spirit and work alive forever.

From vocal samples, to exclusive edits and remixes ‘Nothing But A Number’ is one of a kind project that contains an array of sounds, memories, highlights and great energy from producers and artists such as: Aldo., Cosmo’s Midnight, The Code, Sango, Illusive, Mr. Carmack, El. Train, Mack Five, Singularis, Jeftuz, Aztek, Finn, Timbaland, Missy Elliot, R. Kelly, Koyö, Chiefs & many many more.

I hope that you enjoy and share with your family & friends. Enjoy & much love.
