Info zu Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite (Remastered)

Neues Remaster! Maxwells Debüt stellte ihn als neues, musikalisches Talent vor, während das Album Urban Hang Suite als Grundstein und Start der Neo-Soul-Ära gilt.

Aus Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite gingen vier Hit-Singles hervor: „…Til the Cops Come Knockin‘,“ „Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder),“ „Sumthin‘ Sumthin'“ and „Suitelady (The Proposal Jam)“ inkl. unterschiedlicher Versionen der Album-Songs auf zahlreichen EPs. „Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder)“ erreichte Platinstatus während „Sumthin‘ Sumthin'“ mit Gold von der RIAA ausgezeichnet wurde.

Während es langsam aber sicher in den Charts nach oben stieg und seine Spuren hinterließ, wurde Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite das meistgespielte Album des Jahres, mit 78 Wochen in den Billboard 200 Charts und erreichte RIAA Doppel-Platin Status. Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite schaffte es zudem in die Liste der „Top 10 der besten Alben des Jahres“ von Time, Rolling Stone, USA Today und vielen weiteren. Zudem wurde es für einen Grammy in der Kategorie „Best R&B Album“ nominiert. Mit seinem Debüt-Album definierte Sänger, Songwriter und Performer Maxwell klassische Soul Musik für eine neue Generation neu.

Along with fellow founders D'Angelo and Erykah Badu, Maxwell was enormously important in defining and shaping the neo-soul movement that rose to prominence over the latter half of the '90s. Drawing his greatest inspiration from the concept of the R&B auteur (looking to artists like Prince, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, etc.), Maxwell recorded some of the most ambitious R&B of his time, becoming wildly popular and often earning critical raves in the process. What was more, his recurring theme of romantic monogamy set him apart from the vast majority of his bump'n'grind loverman contemporaries.

Maxwell was born May 23, 1973, in Brooklyn, New York; he adopted his middle name as his stage moniker, keeping his real identity a closely guarded secret out of concern for his family's privacy. Born of Puerto Rican and black Caribbean stock, Maxwell suffered the loss of his father (in a plane crash) when he was just three years old. The experience made him a deeply religious child, and he first began singing in his Baptist church. Still, he didn't really get serious about music until age 17, when he began writing his own songs using a cheap Casio keyboard given to him by a friend. Initially influenced by early-'80s R&B, he progressed rapidly, and by 1991 he was performing on the New York club scene, despite ridicule from classmates who couldn't imagine the shy, awkward teenager doing anything of the sort. After making a name for himself, he signed a recording contract with Columbia in 1994.

Maxwell's Urban Hang SuiteMaxwell recorded his debut album, Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite, that year, working extensively with several collaborators, including songwriter Leon Ware (who'd co-written Marvin Gaye's I Want You) and guitarist Wah Wah Watson (who'd also worked with Gaye). Multi-instrumentalists and producers Stuart Matthewman (of Sade and Sweetback) and Hod David were involved on deeper levels and would work with Maxwell throughout his career. Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite was a romantic concept album in the vein of Gaye's greatest '70s work, with a more modern flavor courtesy of Prince's influence; inspired by a brief but intense affair, the record's giddy celebration of committed monogamy could have come off as old-fashioned as its classic influences, given the marketplace dominance of hip-hop soul at the time. Partly for those fears, it wasn't released right away, although a series of shake-ups in Columbia's management played a bigger role in the delay. It wasn't until the spring of 1996 that the album finally appeared. Sales were slow to take off at first, even though Maxwell scored some airplay with "...Til the Cops Come Knockin'." The gold-selling second single "Ascension (Never Wonder)" lit the fuse, however, and Urban Hang Suite went platinum before a year had passed, also earning a Grammy nomination. … Source: AMG)
