When my homie DJ Blue told me about self taught composer/writer/arranger/producer, Ahmed Sirour, I took the time out to listen to his latest “The After 2am Sessions” LP. Ahmed is from Brooklyn NY and released his EP a year ago utilizing 3 themes of love: the romantic, the erotic, and the spiritual. He added 6 brand new songs and turned his EP into a full album.

Tensei‘s “Two” is the follow up EP on Plug Research from Chris and Midas.

Now this is the kind of music that we love telling you about. Several weeks ago ATL saxophonist Darryl Reeves released his new Jazz fusion album entitled “Mercury” via Epic Life Music Group. His 2004 “Diary of a Bandstand” album featured the likes of Robert Glasper and now after eight long years, Mr Reeves is back with a very soulful mix of Mercury music. There are a few interpretations of classic Jazz songs such as Donald Byrd’s “Think Twice”, but also some brand new own material that sounds just as amazing. We suggest you get your copy at without hesitation, after having listened to some streams below of course. [Spotted over at Kevinnottingham]

Not trying to sound like a broken record here, but Mez is delivering some sweet stuff once again. His latest collaboration with miss Soia is entitled “Lost in Memory” and displays that warm yet raw Vienna sound that caresses the ears. Thanks to both this one is available as a free download on Mez’s Soundcloud page. We’re ready for Mez to step it up even another notch though, cuz there is even more hidden in this talented producer.

One of KCRW’s most huggable DJ’s is without a doubt Anthony Valadez. His new single “Under Water” featuring Mar and The Park is the first sneak peak of what we can expect to hear on his upcoming “Just Visiting” LP on Plug Research coming out in June. There’s also a nice Full Crate remix on this single, so I suggest you visit for your fix.
