Description

The playground stomp of Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl," The cosmic bounce of Britney Spears' steamy statement "I'm A Slave 4 U" and the lazy sway led by a toy flute and mouth percussion on Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" can all be attributed to the Neptunes, one of the most successful production teams for more than a decade. It's hard to remember what urban radio sounded like before Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams teamed up for a sonic onslaught that would forever alter the landscape of the hip-hop and pop universe back in 2000. Their laundry list of hits runs deep. Aptly-titled "Party on the Ocean Floor," a shout-out to the off-kilter instrumentation and de-tuned drums that have long been the duo's trademark, the latest installment of D1ME celebrates the Neptunes with Sake One and The C.M.E working the decks.
