Following the massive success of his previous two ‘Collection’ compilation albums, legendary broadcaster, DJ, and musical pioneer Trevor Nelson is back with the release of the third offering in the series: ‘The Trevor Nelson Collection 3’.

Also appearing are world renowned acid jazz/funk group Jamiroquai, reggae stars Dawn Penn and Kevin Lyttle, and hip–hop pioneers OutKast. In addition, the third collection features a number of modern smash hits including Grammy Award-winning artist Frank Ocean’s ‘Thinkin Bout You’, hard hitting 2014 dancefloor anthem ‘Loyal’ from Chris Brown and the retro groove-filled Daft Punk collaboration ‘Gust Of Wind’ by chart topping superstar Pharrell Williams.

In its day Pure Swing was renowned for showcasing future hits, as well as established artists that had emerged out of the New Jack Swing / Swingbeat scene, from the late eighties in the US. This genre was labelled as the first truly acceptable collaboration between Hip Hop and R&B. The likes of R.Kelly, Jodeci, Soul For Real, Bobby Brown, Brandy, Blackstreet, Aaliyah, Coolio, TLC, The Whitehead Brothers, Mary J Blige, Joe, Wreckx-N-Effects, Adina Howard and Montell Jordan appeared on Pure Swing collections, as they were exploding onto the UK scene. Britain eventually embraced this sound, which spawned many home grown artists, Mark Morrison, Shola Ama, Damage, Wayne Marshall and Beverley Knight, to name but a few.
