Indonesia: Do Thangz (Remixes) (Promo VLS) (Riot Records, 1994)

Copied from original post: Along with NKRU and Ladies 1st, here is yet another 90s R&B/New Jack Swing group that sadly went nowhere despite being hyped by their label as bringing a "fresh street perspective to R&B music." Unfortunately, there was no shortage of groups like this during the early to mid 90s (SWV, TLC to name a few) and although it got a positive review from Billboard Magazine (April 22nd, 1994 issue) and made a noticeable impact on the Hot R&B Singles chart, these "sassy chirping street dolls" quickly followed the others back into obscurity. The above song - a chilled West Coast vibe - never made it off the radio (meaning it was never distributed to the general public) but a video to the song must've been made as it did appear on MTV's on-demand station The Box. Again such a shame that they went nowhere. Like many other R&B groups and singers during the 90s and early 2000s, it seems they were just around to fill that given year's quota for black and urban music. Dope remixes of the short-lived trio's only single and released to test press vinyl only in 1994. I didn't think anything could trump the original...boy I was wrong. 

Many thanks again to Stuaaart for this amazing score!
