It wasn't really a movement, barely even a moment, but
the Daisy Age was an ethos that permeated pop, R&B
and hip hop at the turn of the 90s. Playfulness and
good humour were central to De La Soul's 1989 debut
album, "3 Feet High And Rising", which would go on to
cast a long, multi-coloured shadow over rap.
In Britain, the timing for "3 Feet High And Rising"
couldn't have been better. The acid house explosion of
1988 would lead to a radical breaking down of musical
barriers in 1989, and its associated look - loose
clothing, dayglo colours, smiley faces - chimed with
the positivity of De La Soul and rising New York rap
acts the Jungle Brothers and A Tribe Called Quest, all
at the heart of a growing collective called Native
The Native Tongues' charismatic, summery aura
quickly spread west to the Bay Area's similarly-minded
Hieroglyphics crew (Del Tha Funky Homosapien's
'Mistadobalina'); Canada's Dream Warriors ('My
Definition Of A Boombastic Jazz Style') used "3 Feet
High"'s colour palette and borrowed Count Basie and
Quincy Jones riffs; Naughty By Nature (OPP) were
mentored by Native Tongues heroine Queen Latifah,
while Londoner Monie Love was also adopted by the
collective, resulting in her Grammy-nominated 'It's A
Shame (My Sister)'. It wasn't built to last, but the Daisy Age reintroduced
Multiplication Rock, bubble writing and the gently
psychedelic into the charts. It was a brief, but
extraordinarily warm and optimistic moment. The
songs on this collection promised that the 90s would
be a lot more easy-going than the 80s.
