R&B’s Electronica Soul

Dallas Austin produced the hit single on r&b singer Blu Cantrell’s debut album, So Blu, which may sound like an odd bit of trivia on an electronic-music site. But the CD single (which is actually under Cantrell’s name) is worth checking out because it includes the instrumental (i.e., vocal-free) version of the song “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!),” which is a masterfully swinging assemblage of samples, plunked piano keys and obscure noises. It wouldn’t sound out of place on a Ninja Tune compilation.
