The beautiful Neo Soul singer Choklate teams up with Stas Thee Boss fromĀ THEESatisfaction on “You Got It All”. The song is about knowing that what we create can be given away for the simple fact that there’s no shortage of innovation and artistic creativity. The artwork was created by Stas and is a mesh of Choklate’s image along with a female Samburu warrior. Thanks to DJ Jamad from Afromentals for the heads up.

Last week sir Benny Badge blessed us with the new Freekwency album. I recon “Seal The Deal” sounds like being in the middle of the early eighties. It’s Funk at it sleaziest (in the best way possible). Of course partly thanks to contributions from Cazeaux O.S.L.O., Charli James, Jordan Ruru, Ale Chambers & De Konichiwa. So as I was carefully selecting which songs to stream, I found myself searching for that heavy headnod material with a heavy groove. And just when I was browsing on Soundcloud (for something totally different) my eye caught a glimpse of this Yam Who? edit. I guess it was meant to be in this post! Enjoy this wonderful Funk-filled album and purchase if you like what you hear.

Twenty-two year old Nick Price grew up singing classical music and performed in several operas, with the Canadian Opera Company, before realizing his passion was in contemporary Soul. He grew up in Toronto, studied music at Berklee College of Music (Boston) and moved out to L.A. where he currently resides.

Since I have known B. Bravo he’s been in a band called the Bayonics. I’ve heard this 10 piece band play funk, latin, reggae and some hip hop live and they rock! Lead singer Rojai was mentioned on here before regarding his “Hard Pressed” EP with E-Live. It kinda makes sense for buddy Bravo to drop a remix of their “Good Love” cut from their “City Roots” EP. Luckily good love is often free, so make sure you snatch up that free download!

Young Jacob from Bristol aka Raleigh Ritchie teams up with Syd & Matt from The Internet on his latest “Black and Blue Point Two” EP. Might sound a bit poppy for some of you, but we thought you might enjoy the “Inside” remix. This EP is available as a free download by the way, so why don’t you give it a listen.

L.A.’s top notch producer Swiff D has always been on the top of our list, when it comes to straight slammin’ hip hop producers. A few days ago Steve put 10 “Washington Park” instrumentals on his Soundcloud page and we thought you might enjoy hearing some of that illness!

It’s been a while, but today I learned that Moonchild (the trio coming out of L.A.) released another quality album. For those that know about “Be Free”…you are going love their new adventure entitled “Please Rewind”. I never thought I’d appreciate this one as much as their previous album, but I do! Super soulful and jazzy with soothing vocals from the lovely Amber. Something you should definitely get comfy to and purchase.
