Leave it up to Roy Ayers & Marley Marl to make sure you’ll be “Hummin'” in the sun today. A golden era Hip Hop producer and a platinum era Jazz legend together on BBE’s “The Beat Generation”. Now that’s something to smile about. Enjoy the sun a little bit extra today while listening to this..

Miss Tweet has been releasing some amazing new music recently and we almost missed out on “Proceed”, which she released as a free download almost a month ago. Yesterday I was listening to this song over and over, so today I decided this is a definite Slept on Sundays jam!

And we’ve returned with the latest edition of what you’ve been missing. This month’s “Glimmering Fractions” mix is all about blood-red rubyies and soulful gems. Lots of quality music this month, so I bet you’re gonna love this one. Check out this month’s mix on Soundcloud (download available) or head over to Mixcloud (stream only).
Just came across an amazing mix from French DJ/producer Breakbot entitled “The Lazy Sunday Selecta” mix. You can instantly hear somebody put some time and effort in the selection as well as in the blending. This mix contains a lot of Disco, Boogie/Funk and ends with a few sexy slow jams. Shout out to Sounds of The 70’s for sharing this on their Soundcloud page.
After a few days of hard work, sunshine and hearing no postworthy music at all, I finally ran into something sweet from The Noire. The duo consists of brainchild Deshon Thrower and Saoul Bumbu who together bring some new Funk in the form of “Fire To The Flame”. Make sure you visit their Bandcamp page and grab this on a ‘name your price’ basis.
