A few weeks ago we heard Mr Beatnick‘s new song entitled “Sun Goddess” of the same titled EP coming out next week on Don’t Be Afraid. I thought it was so good that I put it in a mix for #jusayin radio. Don’t know when that will be out, but when Nick just sent over a link to the official video I was happy. It’s my pleasure to share this wonderful tune with you guys! Spread the word if you like this..

Brady is also playing in the Senseis band alongside Daru Jones and John Cave.

Most of you know what the deal with the Irish producer they call Krystal Klear. This time around he teams up with the slick Olivier DaySoul to release the heavily eighties influenced “Never Thought You Would Go” and the throwback Swingbeat joint “Wastin’ Time”. Look for a limited vinyl run to hit your local record shop on Monday or go ahead and pre-order this 10″ over at Rush Hour.

Some Scratcha Madness:

If it hadn’t been for “Just Vybe” featuring the lovely miss Fatima, I probably would’ve never heard of UK Funky man DVA. Recently he announced his debut album, “Pretty Ugly”,  is coming out in 2012 on Hyperdub Records, but before the end of the year he’ll be releasing a 12″ first. It will contain “Madness” featuring Vikter Duplaix (plus an instrumental version) and “Polyphonic Dreams” on the flipside. Also peep the video or pre-order at Rush Hour.

Erykah’s A Child Of The Funk

When you’re done listening to that incredible piece on Dilla, I suggest you take another 2 hours. Just sit back, relax and get ready to listen to miss Erykah Badu who gave a lecture a few days ago at the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid. Very interesting interview done by Egon from Stones Throw. Enjoy this one!

Black Power, Brown Pride:

Man I love waking up Saturday morning with video’s like these. I guess it kinda reminds me of Yo MTV Raps! MED‘s “Blaxican” was produced by Madlib and is taken from the “Classic” album dropping November 1st. The video was director by Mochilla’s Eric Coleman and shot in LA as you can see.
